Memorex MP3 Players

Memorex on Monday launched a visual redesign of its MMP media player line that introduces a much simpler interface as well as a new form factor. The Clip & Play (pictured) aims at the same audience as the iPod shuffle or Sansa Clip and comes in a very small, squarish design that can be hooked to a shirt edge or belt during exercise. Despite the size, Memorex finds room for a two-line OLED screen that itself allows extra features such as an equalizer and an FM radio tuner. The jukebox plays MP3 and WMA for up to 10 hours on a charge and sells for $50 with 2GB of built-in flash.

A more advanced player, the MMP8590, adds a significantly larger 1.5-inch OLED and the complimentary support for JPEG photos. A voice recorder and a stopwatch feature also separate the player from its smaller sibling. Memorex ships the device with an armband and offers it in a 2GB version for $60; a 4GB version is also available but hasn't been priced.
