iriver P8 player shows up on Russian site

Posted in iRiver by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2011

iriver has not updated its P series of large-screen portable media players in quite some time, so you are likely as surprised as we are that this five-incher has shown up on the company’s Russian site. With a battery life of up to nine hours of video and 40 hours of audio to boot.

The P8 comes in 8GB and 16GB sizes, sports a microSD slot, and an HDMI port for pushing HD content to a TV. We have no idea if it will ever land on American shores or how much it will cost when it does, but we like what we see.

Well, both the 4-inch Galaxy Player 4 and the 5-inch Galaxy Player 5 will be headed to the US this spring. Samsung isn’t talking exact timing or pricing yet though. This player is upgradable to Android 2.3, with full Market access and will be headed to the US sometime soon.

Posted in iPod Accessories by Shane McGlaun on April 29th, 2010

I have lots of notebooks and netbooks that come through my hands and I have tested more than my share of MP3 players and iPods too. One thing that many of the devices have in common is that they lack bass.

If you want more bass from your iPod or MP3 player the zo personal subwoofer promises the kind of bass you expect form a 12-inch sub from a device the size of an iPod nano. The zo has a gauge on the front to show the intensity level it is set at.

The link may not work, but look at that. The Zune HD 64 has made an appearance on the official Zune website. Seems like Microsoft has something they want to tell us.

A 64GB Zune HD, which doubles the capacity of the previous model and means that we have three models to choose from. There’s no further info on it just yet, but as soon as Microsoft wants to stop teasing us and give us some real info, we’ll let you know.

Microsoft cuts Zune HD prices to fight competition

Posted in Zune HD by Conner Flynn on February 7th, 2010

Microsoft’s very own store has dropped its prices as well, to $200 for a 16GB Zune HD and $270 for a 32GB edition. It’s looking like a great time to buy a Zune. Walmart and some other retailers are also closely matching those prices on Amazon.

It’s still cold here in Texas, but I know in a few months we will be back up in the 90’s or higher and we will all be wishing the cold weather was back. With the warm weather within sight, many people are probably already dreaming about hitting the beach or lake for some fun.

Many people like to take music with them, but most MP3 players are too fragile to stand up to water and drops. Marinemart has announced that it is taking pre-orders on the Freestyle Audio Waterproof MP3 player. The device can play MP3, WMA, and WMA DRM files.
