Meizu M6 Mini Player SE, 7mm Thin and Coming in August

Illustration for article titled Meizu M6 Mini Player SE, 7mm Thin and Coming in August

We were already thinking the Meizu M6 was a damn good multimedia player, with FM and video playback plus a lower price than the iPod nano. Then Meizu announced its Meizu M6 Mini Player SE late last year, identical to the M6 except in one very important respect: It's scarcely thicker than a credit card. How does 7mm sound to you? That's just a hair fatter than the iPod nano's 6.5mm thickness.

Now it looks like we'll be seeing the finished product this August, offered only in 8GB trim, for the reasonable price of $130. Hey, that's $119 less than the 8GB nano.

DISCUSSION

the frame rate of the M6 is 20 fps.

i bought the 4GB version for $99 from [walgreens.com] (who REALLY need to learn the basis of online retailing—they SUCK).

on the Mac encoding a correctly-oriented, correctly-sized video file is an enormous challenge (for me at least & i have a lot of patience). the M6 has a native video size of 240x320. i CAN playback files that are 320x240 and perform the 90° rotation on playback, but the results are maddening stutters and loss of audio sync after about 5 seconds.

its a cool little gadget and the size is awesome. if the software quirks could be worked out just teensy bit more it would be the player i never leave the house without.

as of today its in the pile of gadgets that haven't lived up to the promise of the hype (hello eyeTV).
