Pundit Says Short Handheld Entertainment. I Say Bad Idea.

Microcrap speculator is saying that investors should short ZVUE also known as Handheld Entertainment. Shorting this stock, Handheld Entertainment Inc. (Nasdaq ZVUE) is like playing with fire. I wrote about Handheld earlier and believe that it is trying to pull a Google in the MP3 market. In fact, yesterday, it announced that it will beginning selling at $69.95 MP3 at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE WMT) that is preloaded with the 30 top hits of 2006.

The CEO Jeff Oscodar announced:

At a suggested retail price of $69.95, the ZVUE MP3 player is an MP3 player with a bonus as it comes pre-loaded with 30 of the top hits of 2006, including two No. 1 singles from Beyonce: "deja vu" and "Check on it," as well as eight other Top 10 songs (as tracked by Billboard magazine in its various Billboard charts). Other recording artists included on the ZVUE MP3 Player range from Nick Lachey to Jessica Simpson and from the Dixie Chicks to Five for Fighting. (A complete list is found below.)

I think that the pre-load feature is a great differentiator and the price point is very cheap.

The Zview will come with the following 30 songs. You can check out ZVUE Playerat Amazon.com.
