Tomato unveils iPod-like mini player

iPod-like mini player

Korean firm Tomato has unveiled the Tomato mini, an ultra-compact music player bearing an uncanny resemblance both to Apple's iPod and the Chinese-made Meizu M6. Despite measuring less than 1.9 inches long and a weighing half an ounce, the player uses its familiar control scheme for many of the same functions as competing models. Beyond MP3 playback, the mini is capable of maintaining a contact list, eBook reading, and voice recording. The device includes a relatively efficient OLED screen, supporting up to 10 hours of continuous music playback according to Tomato's estimates.

Tomato's smallest player is already shipping in iPod-matching black and white colors, according to Electronista, with pricing that varies depending on storage: a base 512MB model costs $42 in Korea, while 1GB and 2GB editions sell for $63 and $85 respectively.

    Uncanny resemblance?

    Uncanny how? Because it has a shiny back?

    Uh, no.

    That looks nothing like an iPod.
