As more and more companies venture into the portable music player markets with their sleek designs and mammoth memories, Sanyo launches DMP-M400SD (S) MP3 player with no built-in memory and a no-frills look. To listen to music on this player you need to get your own SD cards (supporting MP3 and WMA) up to 2 GB. It is powered by a single AAA battery for an approximate runtime of 12 hours. The single color backlight LED shows the related information on the screen as well as adding to the bare bone look of the player. Scheduled for a launch in August in Japan, DMP-M400SD (S) MP3 player with it’s $60 price tag is ideal for a pauper like me who really doesn’t care much about the sleek snazzy looks of all those new MP3 players(that’s just crap…but you got to justify your economic inferiority).
Is it a remote control? Is it a credit card? Damn! It’s a MP3 player. First look at Signeo sn-a800 and it’s almost impossible to guess the working of this retro styled MP3 player. It also includes a built-in FM tuner, voice memo recording and the ability to record radio shows into the MP3 format. Sounds cool but the price does seem to prevent you from grabbing this ‘good looking’ audio gadget. You have to shell out $180 for the 512 MB version and $250 if you are interested in doubling the capacity. Available in blue, black or yellow, its unconventional looks do make it eye candy despite the fact that it is overpriced when compared with its counterparts available in the market.

Sadly, the cool iRiver D25 will land in Korean market only at a price of $400. Now, that’s not cool news about the pretty device.
Ministry of Sound (MoS) celebrates its 15th anniversary by announcing the new 6GB MP055C6 MP3 player that is encased stylishly in piano black. It’s not revealed whether the player boasts a flash drive or a hard drive. Anyhow, you need to shell out £179.99 to make the MP055C6 yours. The player comes pre-loaded with ten tracks from the MoS’s collection. I think they should have revealed something more powerful and unique. Afterall, it is the question of MoS’s 15th birthday.
