Toshiba Gigabeat U206

Toshiba on Monday morning released new versions of its Gigabeat U series to appeal to fresh listeners. Both the U104 and the U205 share the same flat-panel control scheme, 1GB of flash storage, and a new set of gold, light blue, and pink color options. Both are also based around the same 1.1-inch color OLED display and MP3/WAV/WMA audio support as well as photo viewing, the company says. The U104 starts the line at $87 with the core feature set; the $129, 2GB U205 adds in-canal earbuds and both an FM transmitter and tuner, letting it connect to a car's stereo without an adapter or share music with any FM-capable music player.

A third model, the U206, carries the same hardware features as the U205 but opts for a cross-shaped directional pad and new blue, brown, and red color options. It ships at the same $129 price. All three Gigabeat U models ship to Japan on November 9th. International releases were not mentioned, though Toshiba recently brought the Gigabeat U202 to the US in black and silver trim.
