Article Body:
PocketDish is one of the latest ent
ertainment innovations, brought to
the market by EchoStar. The devices
 are designed to make it convenient
 to access videos, music, games and
 photos anytime and anyplace. With
three separate versions of PocketDi
sh, it is possible to store up to 4
0 hours of programming, 20,000 song
s, and 400,000 photos. Movies and s
hows can be downloaded from DISH Ne
twork DVRs or other devices and wat
ched in the car, a waiting room, or
 at a friend's house. Each device c
omes with a rechargeable battery th
at allows 4 hours of viewing time b
efore recharging. Music and photos
are also readily downloaded to give
 access to favorite songs and good
memories at any location. With musi
c playback only, the battery will l
ast approximately 12 hours before n
eeding to be refreshed. The other P
ocketDish feature is its gaming cap
ability. Brain teasers, role-playin
g games and adventure games are all
 accessible in one small package.

Currently three versions of PocketD
ish are on the market. The AV402E i
s the entry-level version and offer
s many features. It houses a 2.2 in
ch LCD screen in a device that meas
ures 4.2 in x 2.4 in x 0.7 in. The
20GB hard drive gives storage capac
ity of 20 hour of video, 10,000 son
gs, and 200,000 photos. This versio
n does not contain a built-in DVR,
so video programming must be transf
erred from select DISH Network DVR
players. Audio and photos can, howe
ver, be transferred from any compat
ible source.

The AV500E is the middle version of
 PocketDish, offering more features
 than the AV402E. For roughly doubl
e the price, the 500 offers an extr
a 10GB of hard drive space and DVR
capabilities. This device, with 30G
B can store about 30 hours of video
, 15,000 songs and 300,000 photos.
It also has a larger LCD screen at
4 inches and a slightly larger body
 size. The biggest difference, thou
gh, is its ability to record shows
from any TV, satellite receiver, ca
ble box or VCR. Because it is a DVR
, it can also be hooked up to a tel
evision to play any recorded shows
on the larger screen.

The most advanced version is the AV
700E. It has the same DVR capabilit
ies as the 500, but includes 40GB i
n hard drive, allowing storage of 4
0 hours of video, 20,000 songs, and
 400,000 photos. It also features a
 7 inch screen for easier viewing.
Both the AV500E and AV700E come com
plete with a remote control, dockin
g station, removable battery and st
and.

With all of the PocketDish models,
programming can be downloaded free
from compatible DISH Network DVRs o
r other devices. If a USB 2.0 port
is used, one hour of programming ca
n be downloaded within 5 minutes. T
he PocketDish can also be hooked up
 to a receiver without a compatible
 USB connection, but download time
will increase to 1 hour for each ho
ur of programming. All versions als
o allow software upgrades via satel
lite or the DISH Network website. P
lus, PocketDish offers parental con
trol locks to let parents limit kid
's access to inappropriate programming.

PocketDish combines the capabilitie
s of several audio-visual devices t
o offer a very versatile and portab
le technology. It offers many of th
e benefits of satellite TV in a han
d-held format, plus storage and pla
ying capacity for music, photos and
 games.
