Tomato mini

Korea's Tomato has unveiled the Tomato mini, an ultra-compact music player that bears 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 ounze, the player uses its familiar control scheme for many of the same functions as its inspirations. Beyond MP3 playback, the mini is capable of maintaining a contact list, eBook reading, and voice recording. Its relatively efficient OLED screen helps the device run for 10 hours of continuous music, according to Tomato's estimates.

Tomato's smallest player is already shipping in iPod-matching black and white colors. Prices vary depending on storage: a base 512MB model costs $42 in its home country, while 1GB and 2GB editions sell for $63 and $85 respectively. More detailed photos can be seen after the jump. [via AVING]
