Mp3, Mp4, Mp5 – Whatever It Takes

I was checking out the bargain basement tech over on DealExtreme this morning, and came across this oddity. According to the manufacturer, what we’ve got here is an MP5, yes M-P-FIVE player.

MP5 Player

As far as I know, there is no official MP5 file format. As best I can tell is that this is just some sort of marketing hooey, designed to deceive the public into thinking they’re getting their hands on something new and exciting. The $60 player looks like any other cheap MP4/MP3 media player, complete with a 2.5-inch color screen, an FM tuner and 1GB of flash memory.

If you’re willing to take a gamble on one of these players, you can pick one up here. As is always the case with this kind of stuff, Caveat Emptor.
