New gigabeat MP3 Player From Toshiba » read source
Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., expanded its portfolio of mobile technologies with the addition of the gigabeat MP3 player. Every gigabeat U-Series MP3 player is equipped with a 2GB NAND flash drive, providing ample space for storing nearly 500 songs and 2,000 photos. Additionally, users can conveniently transfer songs from CDs directly to the gigabeat U-Series through its line-in headphone jack. As a result, users who are away from a computer can still transfer music without having to first copy it onto a computer by ripping it directly into the gigabeat.
Toshiba’s gigabeat U-Series is a freshly designed digital music player with direct-to-MP3 player music ripping technology, FM tuner and radio recorder. Further supplying users with variety, the gigabeat is outfitted with an internal FM tuner and recorder. With the tuner, users can easily listen to their favorite live radio station feeds or record a song to be enjoyed later. The gigabeat can store up to 10 preset radio stations for greater ease of use.
“We are very proud of the new gigabeat U-Series. It’s the perfect straight-forward device for users who are looking for a way to take their favorite songs with them everywhere,” said Jeff Barney, vice president of marketing, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. “And beyond being easy to use, it’s aesthetically beautiful.”
Each gigabeat sports chrome PlusPad control button and a rich color 1.1-inch OLED display for a more profound visual experience. Weighing in at 1.48 oz, the gigabeat U-Series is a light weight, palm-sized device that’s available in either stunning silver or black aluminum enclosure. The result of such attention to detail is an MP3 player that’s durable, easy to navigate and striking to look at.
The Toshiba gigabeat U-Series is compatible with Windows Media Player version 10 and above, making the transfer of entire media collections a few simple clicks away. The gigabeat U-series has a starting price of $99 and is available at variety of major consumer electronics and computer stores.
