Just in case you’ve been living under a rock this month (or worse, haven’t got the July issue of Stuff), Philip’s latest GoGear line-up is worth having a look at. There are five players in total, all with Philips trademark FullSound technology that enhances tunes with fuller base, instrument clarity and depth. It’s a pretty decent range, from high-end Opus with 2.8in LCD and 16GB of storage to fashionable Luxe with Bluetooth and FM radio. and all are available right now. Check out more details, here.
Here’s the newest media player from iRiver, the B30. Its got 16GB internal memory (expandable via microSD), a 2.8in QVGA screen and will gobble up any filetype you feed it, including .avi video. It packs decent battery life, 40 hours of music and 5.5 hours of video playback, and is wrapped in a svelte and very shiny surface. And while that case looks like a bit of a finger print magnet to us, it still looks tasty.

You don’t find many robot rabbit and marshmallow crosses outside of Japan, and it’s a shame really. Mashamaro is a tiny 19g MP3 player with 2GB of storage and light-up ears that act as a five-way controller. The audio jack appropriately slots into Mashamaro’s bum, and a USB slot can provide up to nine hours of battery life. Available from Sorikom, now.

Again proving the smaller the player, the brighter and more eye-catching it needs to be. Sony’s newest E-series MP3 players have a range of fully customisable skins with different colours, patterns and even leopard prints. The players look pretty decent spec-wise too, coming in 2GB, 4GB or 8GB flavours with FM radio, mini LCD screen and over 28-hours of continuous playback.

We saw LEGO walkie-talkies and digicams, and now it’s time for brick-based MP3 players. These from Digital Blue are made from the actual bricks, a small LCD screen with 2GB memory. It’s rechargeable via USB, and a full charge will last you eight hours of build time.
First off, this card-sized MP3 player concept looks great. Small, thin and wallet sized, it’s the perfect portable player. But it’ll also double up as a credit or debit card too, bringing whole new meaning to the term ‘pay and play.’ It also has an OLED screen, 3.5mm headphone jack and touch sensitive buttons. Now that we’ve gotten that out the way, while this MP3 player might become popular in Neverland or Narnia, it’s never going to see the light of day in Reality Town. Unless someone creates a machine that reverses the laws of Physics, that is. But we can always dream…
