If we weren't iPhone users, we would most definitely want an MP3 player. They can be carried just about anywhere and come in handy at places such as the gym, grocery store or just riding around town. Not only do we care about function, but we also care what our MP3 player looks like.
The Coby MP3 Player is small, compact and great looking too. It may look a little like a red turtle shell, but is there anything wrong with that?
The MP3 player comes with integrated flash memory, USB adapter (runs USB 2.0), headphones and a rechargeable battery. The Micro MP3 player plays MP3 and WMA files &mdash so you don't have to worry about loading songs that won't play.
With 2 gigs of memory, you can hold quite a few songs &mdash especially if you're using it for exercise (that's what I use my iPod for). There are five different menu languages and a play time of five hours. Five hours isn't super long, but, we don't mind having to charge our items every few days.
We're not really sure where the controls or menu are located. Maybe Coby designed their MP3 player to be a competitor of the shuffle with the sole controls in the headphones? Some people are very against shuffle only MP3 players, but if you're using it while you're active it doesn't matter so much. As long as the headphones come with an option to skip songs, we wouldn't mind.
There's no pricing information available yet, but, we're assuming the Coby MP3 Player won't cost an arm and a leg.
