MegaPlayer model 529 running Vista Sideshow

We all know that Windows Vista will have a new way of displaying things. An MP3 player made by MSI, currently in prototype stage, seems to be taking advantage of that, using many of it's feature's. Japanese website "Tech-On" has shown this prototype.

This could be a big advancement if other companies could use the looks that Windows uses. Many companies will lose the stock theme and may add Aero, for a better "Experience".

If we see better looks in MP3 players, many more would be tempted to buy them. If Microsoft lets MSI use their UI, Microsoft will have the opportunity to license off their theme, as they did with their OS.
