Shoot Photos & Video, Play Games, Watch Movie Clips, Listen to Music, & Store Media for only $199

City of Industry, CA, March 2, 2007 - DXG USA (www.dxgusa.com), one of the fastest growing digital camera manufacturers, announced today the new DXG-Roadster all-in-one Personal Media Center that lets you take your entertainment on the road wherever you go. The DXG-Roadster (Model DXG-521) is the only device you’ll ever need to capture precious memories and keep you entertained while traveling. The Roadster is a combination 5 Megapixel digital and video camera, video game and music player with FM radio, voice recorder and storage device, with 32MB of internal storage and an SD slot for additional memory.

Your entertainment. When you want it. Where you want it.
Instead of being bored on a plane, waiting at the doctor’s office, at your kid’s soccer practice, or at the Department of Motor Vehicles, why not entertain yourself while waiting? The DXG-Roadster lets you listen to your complete collection of MP3s and videos anywhere you go. You can record TV shows and movies ahead of time directly from any video source via the included AV cable and then watch your favorite "American Idol," "Desperate Housewives" TV shows, or NBA basketball games on the 2.5" bright TFT LCD screen.

As featured in the March 12, 2007 issue of Life & Style Weekly (see http://www.thomas-pr.com/136/photos/dxginlifeandstyle.html for article), the Roadster is the ultimate in design and functionality. Geared towards kids, teens, and young parents, where style, price, and usability are most important, the DXG-Roadster is popular for its price-performance ratio and the multiple features available in one easy-to-tote compact package. Not only can you store and watch your entire media collection of music, videos, and photos wherever you go, you’ll also never miss another once-in-a-lifetime photo-op with the Roadster’s 5 Megapixel camera and camcorder. Also, if you remember something important while on the road, you can record a reminder on the spot with the included digital voice recorder.

No more "Are we there yet?" questions during road trips!
" Are we there yet?" How many times do parents have to hear this on a family trip? With the DXG-Roadster, kids can now enjoy their OWN entertainment. The DXG-Roadster features 4 pre-stored popular video games, such as Tetris, Boxman, and Gobang, and is shaped like the familiar Sony PSP™. And since the device is lower cost than competing products, you won’t be as worried about sticky fingers playing with it.

"No other product offers the amount of features at such a low price," said Paul Goldberg, Vice President – Sales and Marketing, DXG USA. "The DXG-Roadster is a one-of-its-kind mobile experience at a user-friendly price."
