Transparent-Looking PMP Player: You Can Use it As a Mirror

Transparent-Looking PMP Player: You Can Use it As a Mirror

The last PMP that we had was an Archos. We used it on and off, but never as an MP3 player. The thing was just too heavy. We stopped using it when the battery blew up. The PMP market has been growing, but since devices like the iPhone and the iPod Touch serve as PMPs, the future of the market is unsure. The other thing is that people don't see the need to spend an extra amount of money on an extra device. The Newsmy XO is kind of novel since it's pretty cheap and it looks great.

There are a bunch of PMP players out there, but usually most people are satisfied with their iPods to do the trick. Once larger capacity iPod Touch models will be released, they will pretty much double as PMPs easily. PMP are portable media players, small devices that allow you to play any sort of media, like videos, movies, and music. This Newsmy XO PMP is 5mm thick and looks pretty decent, especially when you combine it with the $44 price tag. It comes with a 1.5-inch color OLED screen, which is pretty cool. You'll be able to put 2GB of your favorite media onto it. Plus, unlike the photos of the device let you believe, it's not transparent. It's got a mirror finish, perfect to attract fingerprints or to put on your mascara in style!

We have to say that for this price, it's really hard to say no. It's pretty stylish and I can see how popular a model like this can become. You can find out more at the Newsmy shop, but we think that you'll have to wait a few more weeks before it's available through another online retailer.
