Toshiba Gigabeat-U Media Player: 24 Colors, No Periwinkle?

by Paul Strauss

Toshiba has rolled out a new series of Gigabeat-U digital media players in a huge variety of 24 candy-like colors.

Toshiba Gigabeat U103 Colors

With colors like bamboo, rattan, peony, persimmon and green onion, I thought I was looking at the paint swatches at the Home Depot.

While they may look purty, the Gigabeat U103 series doesn’t offer anything particularly earth-shattering in terms of features. The media players have 1GB of flash memory, a small OLED color display and can play MP3, WMA and WAV tunes. I do like that they have a built-in FM receiver with recording capability, as well as an FM transmitter for sending your audio to your radio, a feature sorely missing from Apple’s iPod line.

The U103 players go on sale today in Japan for ¥13,800 (about $113 USD.)

    Hehe, I thought Creative was mad with 10 colours for the ZEN Micro, ZEN MicroPhoto, and ZEN Nano Plus… XD
