Soap MP4 Player

Brando today listed the Soap MP4 Player, a straightforward MP4 player inspired in no small part by the iPod. With a directional pad shaped like the signature click wheel, the black or white Soap also comes with earbuds recalling Apple's initial models. However, the Hong Kong-based exporter touts features seldom seen on Apple players in the class. The 2GB flash jukebox plays MPEG-4 video on its 1.8-inch OLED screen. An FM tuner and a voice recorder microphone are also integrated, Brando adds. Expectedly, music is supported in MP3, wAV, or WMA formats. Battery life is only rated in terms of recording, with up to 8 hours of continuous audio. Brando is already shipping the Soap abroad in both colors for $100.
