Samsung M1 Player

Samsung M1 Player

In last (I think;-) post form IFA I just wanted to show you some new multimedia pocket players – aka “iPod alternatives”. Well, I am not sure if anything now could be called iPod killer (it seems that Jobs’s toys are kill-proof ;-), but here are some new gadgets you’d consider when looking for some small music and video playing things. First we have Samsung M1 with AMOLED 3,3″ touch screen. It has an nVidia Tegra chipset (with HD capability) and a flash-based UI. It will handle MP3, AAC, MP4, OGG, WMQ, WAV, DivX and Xvid files and store from 8 to 32 GB of your stuff. Nice thing – it weights only 91 grams.

The second kiddo in town is Creative X-Fi2. Again, it has a 3-inch touchscreen and is equipped in memory from 8 to 32 GB which you could expand with the microSD card. It has FM radio, voice recorder and handles MP3, WMA (DRM9), Audible4, AAC, FLAC, WMV9, MPEG4-SP, DivX 4/5 Xvid files.
Both M1 and X-Fi2 are nice looking, ascetic in form. Congrats!

The last thing to mention here is the new player from Sandisk. Sansa Clip+ is a simple player, made to play music, period. It has 2 to 8 GB of internal flash memory and also uses microSd cards (also special slotRadio and slotMusic cards with music on them). Moreover it is equipped in FM radio and 1″ OLED screen, showing you all crucial information about tune played . And it really really tiny and with the clip You can easily put in on your jacket or bag strap.
