Don’t you find it odd that on one hand, our LCD and Plasma TV screens can never be big enough, but on the other hand, gadgets are getting smaller screens all the time.
This new pair of video players are about the size of a credit card, and offer up video on teeny tiny screens. The $99.99 players come in either a black (Neon M3) version with heat-sensitive backlit buttons and a 2.4-inch screen, and a stainless (ICE) model with a slightly larger 2.8-inch screen, but none of the schmancy button tech. In addition to video playback, each one has an FM tuner, photo viewer and a “game” mode.
They can play videos for 3 to 4 hours on a charge, while audio only mode will give you 6 to 8 hours. There’s 2GB of memory on board each model, but they’re expandable using T-Flash/MicroSD memory cards.
Both players are now available from ThinkGeek for $99.99 each.
