Today's DAP Headlines:
A bit of a quiet day in DAP land, this fine Wednesday. Sony presents an expensive version of their successful NW-5/6 concept, the NW-608 SI (Special Edition) and we've encountered two rare DAP species: Gacme's GM-X600 and a panda bear-shaped MP3 player (made by a company called "Kiwi").
Sony's NW-608 SI (or just "Special Edition" if you prefer) offers somewhat improved looks, a 2GB storage capacity (flash memory) and one hell of a price tag (52.500 Japanese Yen, aka 450 bucks) to baffle us all with. Should hit the stores by the end of November (Japan-only, presumably). They also added "snow crystals" to the OLED screen - like we know what they meant by that.
Then there's Gacme's GM-X600, which basically combines the old faitful shuffle navigation wheel and some cube-like elements, as formerly introduced by MobiBlu (DAH-1500, also known as "the Cube"). We're wondering if this concept will ever live to see the light of day - don't count on it too much, though.
And here's our catch of the day: a panda bear-shaped DAP by the name of "Kiwi Global International Corp. Panda MP3 Player". It comes with all the usual features, such as a built-in FM tuner and a voice recorder but we're guessing that the actual design of it all would have to be this thing's most eye-catching feature.
Ok, that's it for now. See you again soon enough!
