Iomega Mixx MP3 player

Iomega today launched its latest challenge to the iPod dominance: the new flash-based , designed specifically for sports and fitness enthusiasts, is touted as a full-featured digital audio player with voice recording and FM broadcast recording as well as other tranditional features. Iomega Mixx says the MP3 player holds up to 19 hours of music (MP3, WMA, or WAV format) in its shock-resistant solid-state memory. The player is the size of a conventional USB key drive (2.96 x 1.5 x 0.92 inches) and provides more than 10 hours of continuous play from its AAA battery. It offers a USB interface, FM stereo with 30 presets, a built-in microphone for voice recording, and a backlit graphical display for viewing song titles, lyrics, and other information. The device features a durable alloy casing with a rubberized easy-grip surface; it ships with a neck strap. Three capacities are available 256MB ($60), 512MB ($90), and 1GB ($130).
