Dyne Tuny MP3 Players
Dyne early on Wednesday revealed two new luxury flash players built with video as a core focus. The leading Tuny 9 (shown) is rare for its inclusion of TV out in a flash-based music player, allowing the display of either JPEG photos or MPEG-4 videos on a much larger screen. The player itself has a comparatively large 2-inch screen and can play video for as long as 8 hours, according to the company's claims. Music playback for MP3, OGG, and WMA is rated at 18 hours. Bluetooth speaker support as well as FM radio tuning are integrated into most models.
Unveiled at the same time is the Tuny 11, a smaller player that emphasizes its discreet size (0.31 inches thick) over features. All but Bluetooth and OGG format support remain intact from its counterpart, while the screen has shrunk slightly to 1.66 inches to further compact its shape. Both it and the Tuny 9 will be available soon in 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB editions for an unspecified price. [Via DAP Review]
