There’s this feeling I get in my gut when the primary marketing point of a new product is that it sports “eye-popping style and color selection”, and then the press release isn’t even accompanied by any photos. That’s exactly the case with the unveiling of the Aero line of
MP3 players from MediaREADY. They say that this new set of players follows on the success of the Glider line before it, but I’ve never heard of that either. Maybe I’m just out of the loop.
In any case, the flash-based Aero players come bundled with Tunebite 3.0 trial software, show love for a range of formats (MP3, WMA, ASF, and WAV), and come with a few other goodies like FM tuning/recording, voice recording, and USB 2.0. Available in capacities ranging from 128MB to 2GB, the MediaREADY Aero DAP can be had for as little as $29. First shipments are expected next month.
I’ve found some pics, and they’re less than “eye-popping”:
