MSFTs iPod Killer Readied for Europe

If I were Steve Jobs, I wouldn't be losing any sleep over this one: three times the size, three times the cost, plays DVDs and store digital photos... uh, why? How do they think this will "kill" the iPod? By landing on it?

MS has been working with several manufacturers, and is expected to introduce a device which will play movies and songs as well as store digital photos through Microsoft's yet-to-be-unveiled Portable Media Center software...The players are expected to sell for between about $700 to $800. They will play MP3s as well as audio and video recorded in Microsoft's digital format. The player will be significantly larger than the iPod in order to accomodate a video screen.
