Philips media players

Philips has announced the latest GoGear line-up for its digital audio players, the Raga, Spark, and LUXE. Features for the Raga include a 2GB or 4GB flash storage, a tiny multi-line display, and roughly 27 hours of battery life. The spark offers a 1.5-inch OLED color screen capable of displaying album art or photos, and navigation style similar to a clix media player. For the LUXE, Bluetooth 2.1 functionality and FM stereo are offered, along with up to 10-hours of playback time and 100 hours in standby. If a BT-enabled phone is nearby and paired up with the LUXE, calls can now be answered without having to swap out headphones.

Both the LUXE and Spark now offer Rhapsody integration and some new "FullSound" EQ tech from Philips.

The Spark is priced at $50 or $60, and the Raga for $35 or $45, both are available in stores now. The LUXE won't be out until January and will cost $90 or $100. [via Engadget]
