Microsoft’s “Argo” / Xbox wireless portable media player revealed!

“We’ve had to sit on this one for a while, but it’s about time we showed you guys at least one possible form Microsoft’s Argo / Xbox-branded wireless portable media player could take.

It’s hard to tell just how much larger the screen on this thing actually is, but it does indeed appear to be a 4:3 aspect ratio display, and could be 3, even 3.5-inches wide. Keep your eyes peeled, you know we do our best to have this stuff as early as possible.”
