Trekstor i.Beat cody

Trekstor has revealed that it will release a quartet of new i.Beat media players at next week's IFA technology show in Berlin: the blaxx, cody, emo, and sonix (pictured) will all be capable of playing video and FM radio regardless of size, the company says. The full-size cody will be the company's large, movie-focused player with a 3.5-inch display, support for AVI clips, and an SD card slot to extend the built-in memory or to view photos directly from a camera. Its smaller parallel, the sonix, shrinks the display to just 2.4 inches but keeps AVI and photo viewing support.

In exchange, the blaxx and emo are focused primarily on music; the blaxx occupies the high end with a touch-sensitive control pad, while the emo relies on a more traditional pad. Both use the lower-quality but more portable SMV format for video and share screens under 2 inches; the blaxx adds a line-in jack for directly recording audio from a CD player.

Exact availability is unknown, but Trekstor has priced the entire line and offers two versions of most players: the emo starts off 1GB and 2GB models at the equivalents of $80 and $109 each, and is accompanied by 2GB and 4GB versions of the blaxx ($163 and $203). The sonix is set to launch in 1GB and 2GB editions ($122 and $163), while the range-topping cody will appear in its own 2GB ($190) and 4GB ($217) versions. The German company typically sells at least some of its line within the US.
