Zing—the company, not the sound effect—is developing a portable media player that functions mostly off of a Wi-Fi connection. Zing is partnering with Yahoo! and Sirius for their new player. The initial prototype includes 8GB of storage space that can be filled wtih music via a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or direct connection. Zing is trying to eliminate the need for a computer with portable media players by allowing for album downloads to come directly to the player via the Wi-Fi connection. Also the Zing player will have the ability to stream Sirius satellite music from the Wi-Fi connection—what? The first model of the Zing player should ship later this year with Sirius branding.

Coming soon: the Wi-Fi MP3 player [Via I4U]
