Chinese digital music fans now have yet another high quality digital audio player to choose from, the Thomson/RCA PMP2008. Judging this book by its cover, the DAP actually looks pretty decent, what with it's post-modern blue lights and metally (yes, a fake word) aesthetic. Under that shiny hood is 1GB of flash storage, almost enough to store all the music you can grab from Usenet in just under five minutes. The 2-inch color screen looks nice, but the USB 1.1 connection is outrageously outdated.


So, it looks nice and is only available in China. It does, however, have a great name. I wish people called me Pimp 2008.
