Evergreen Japan created EG-CVR1000 a credit card sized MP3 player and voice recorder.  As you can see, the USB cord is tightly packed onto tha DAP itself. It can playback MP3 and WAV files. The Lithium Ion battery has juice for 5 hours of playback. It lacks screen, though.
The Evergreen EG-CVR1000 is around 86×55×6mm and 36 grams. It is available in Japan only for ~$ 90. [more]

This new Ibiza player has a full subscription to the Rhapsody-To-Go service, you’ll be able to download over 4 million tracks wirelessly to your player whenever you’ve got a Wi-Fi connection. The player also has built-in bluetooth for wireless headphone connectivity. The player offers a bright 320×240 Samsung color display, and can also play back video content from the Rhapsody store. Like the Zune, it’s also got an FM radio with RDS service. It’s even got a web browser built in, but I can’t imagine how challenging that would be to navigate sans keyboard. [more]

beyonce.jpgSamsung and Beyonce teamed-up to promote the SGH-F300 Ultra Music phone. The advertising campaign featuring the super star kicks off in April starting from Europe and CIS and expanding to other countries where Samsung Ultra Music phones are available. In addition, Ultra Music mobile users will have exclusive access to Beyoncé’s latest hit «Irreplaceable,» which comes embedded in their mobile phones.

Geesung Choi, President of Samsung Electronics’ Telecommunication Business, explained: «The Ultra Music is the perfect solution for all music lovers on the move. The combination of superior sound quality, dedicated user-friendly music controls, and mobile phone features will drive today’s music phone segment.»

The Samsung Ultra Music F300 has a novel dual-face handset design and 2 Megapixel camera, Micro SD card slot, FM radio, 100 MB internal memory, Bluetooth and a crisp color display. The triband GSM phone is just 9.4 mm thick.

If extreme portability is not your biggest concern then anyone looking for a nice headphone splitter and amplifier should head over to the Boostaroo website. Even though the Revolution is nearly as big as the iPod Nano (if not bigger) it makes up for its size with functionality.

Not only does it allow two people to enjoy the sound coming from an MP3, DVD or CD player (or anything with a standard headphone jack) but each listener has the option of cranking the volume up some 400%. So in 30 years when you head off to the otolaryngologist for a hearing aid you’ll at least have someone to go with. I also want to note that the Revolution requires 2 AAAA battery cells which only provide about 22 hours of battery life which could be a problem for some.

The Boostaroo Revolution is available on their website for $49.99 and at the moment also comes with two sets of volume control headphones.
