Toshiba has launched
what it claims is the thinnest, lightest and smallest hard drive-based portable music player yet to grace the market. I can see Toshiba trying to take on iPod's market given the huge popularity of the device.
[COLOR=royalblue]Inside its limited edition dark "sapphire" blue or standard aluminium shell, the Gigabeat packs in a 20GB 1.8in hard drive. More square than the iPod, the Gigabeat resembles a miniDisc player rather than an MP3 player. The device will play MP3s, but Toshiba is touting its support for Microsoft's Windows Media Player 9 format, which presumably means its DRM'd to the hilt.[/COLOR]
