Everyone has iPods. Even people who aren't Apple fanboys. Why? There are multiple reasons behind getting an iPod. Nowadays, you have a choice between the gorgeous iPod Touch in small HD sizes or iPod Classics that come in sizes up to 120GB. Thankfully, I bought a 160GB iPod Classic when they came out, so I'm happy. The reasons that I had behind getting another iPod were simple. It had the largest capacity in the smallest form factor. That being settled, mobiBLU's new player is looking pretty good.
We aren't sure if it's a portable media player or just a media player, but it does attract attention. The simple circular design is easily reminiscent of UFOs. Apparently it will support Bluetooth, a array of different file formats, built-in battery, a headphone jack and 2 to 8GBs worth of internal storage. It does have a screen and it's something more of a stationary media player, without a screen.
What attracted our attention was really the design behind the player, even though its specs seem unimpressive. It's available in either black or red and looks like something that could work well in a lot of different environments, like the office or at home. We could say that children would also appreciate the way it looks. Heck, I'm just waiting for it to take off and beam me into space! [via Engadget]
