In on of the poorest uses for an OLED screen ever, there is this M-Toy MP3 Player which displays an image in 3 concentric circles and requires the user to straighten the image out before it will play the tunes. The tunes come from the USB flash drive that comes with the whole set.
This little gem launched today, and I assume the 32GB is flash storage, every site I saw this thing at referred to the storage as “memory” and the capacity is a rounded out flash size like 8, 16, 32, 64, instead of HDD sizes like 200, 250, and 400GB. Anyways, it’s a Creative Zen model, and it comes in black, and it can store about 8k songs.
So all I had to use to write this story is the pictures, more of which can be found by clicking the via link, but from what I saw, there is a DAP that can play several formats, including those that Karaoke songs are saved in. Then you can hook it up to your TV for some hardcore karaoke action.
I love WiFi radios, I have never used one (except on my PC, never a standalone unit though), but I love the concept, and this latest success from Roberts Radio is no exception with its sleek, basic appearance and WiFi functionality. You can even plug in your MP3 player to this radio.
Why is it that the companies from far away lands that no one has ever heard of are the people releasing the PMPs that could actually give the iPod a run for its money? Why can’t Microsoft, a multi-billion dollar company come up with something that a company in Korea with an operating budget likely in the millions can come up with?
That’s the distributors name, manufacturers name, and then the last 5 are the actual product name, in the title. What a mouthful, anyways, its an Italian device, and it’s a different look at a similar idea.
Basically they took and built a decent MP3 player, and then added the GSM phone functionality, instead of the general way of thought where they build a decent phone and then add an MP3 player function to it. Its very basic too, it weighs 60 grams, has an MP3 player, Phone, USB, Bluetooth FM Radio, Voice Recorder, and a 1GB microSD card that comes with it.
It comes pre-loaded with 10 films, surprisingly none of them featuring Charlie Chaplin. Go figure. No, not really, they are all films of Charlie, but you probably already guessed that.
You can still get it in 20, 30, 80, or 120 gigabyte versions and aside from the 10 Chaplin films you can load it up with MPEG-4, WMV, MP3, WMA, WAV, JPEG, BMP, and PNG media files. You can also surf the net via the integrated wifi connection.
A bit of nostalgia for your MP3 player. This faux boom box is a bit of a do-it-yourself project. It's shipped as flat cardboard with two speakers and two AA batteries. I can't guarantee that the sound quality will be phenomenal, but it would be a cool desktop speaker system for the cubical.
