Wi-Fi equipped O!Play Air HDP-R3

Asus has announced a new model of its O!Play HD media player, the Air HDP-R3. The new O!Play brings WiFi, as well as a card reader, while the rest of the features remains the same as on the previously released ASUS O!Play HDP-R1.

The new O!Play AIR HDP-R3 comes equipped with 802.11n WiFi, as well as the card reader for CF, SD/MMC and Memory Sticks (MS/MS Duo) cards. The rest of the features remained the same as this one still supports MPEG1/2/4, H.264, VC-1, RM/RMVB video formats in almost every known container, including popular avi, mkv, wmv, mp4, mov and a bunch of others. It also supports almost every known audio format.

It has HDMI 1.3, composite audio/video and optical digital audio outputs and has one USB 2.0, one eSATA/USB2.0 combo port, one RJ-45 LAN port and a card reader. The dimensions remain at the same 181x125.3x47.7mm, and the only design touch is the WiFi indicator LED on the front of the device.

It is nice to see that Asus included WiFi on its O!Play HD media player as it is much easier to share media content over network and without cables. We just hope that WiFi and a card reader won't affect the price which unfortunately hasn't been announced. The WiFi-less ASUS O!Play HDP-R1 is available at around €90, and we just hope that the new one won't be much pricier.
