LG has launched a new 8GB MFJM53, a multifunction personal digital MP3 media player with FM radio.
The LG 8GB HDD MP3 player, meant to compete with the iPod, has several features that gives it the advantage.
The MFJM53 has an 8GB drive, a 1.77-inch 128×160 pixel (262,144-colour) touch-sensitive OLED screen, and measures a slight 10.1 x 4.8 x 1.4cm, weighing 88g.
In addition to playing MP3 files, the new LG MFJM53 can handle PlaysForSure WMA files, WAV, Ogg, MPEG-4 AVI, and JPEG files.
The tiny looking gadget also has an powerful FM radio, built-in microphone, and line-in port for audio recording, and company is boasting of up to about 30 hours of music playback or 4 hours of video on a built-in rechargable battry.
They also list something called “Music Therapy” in the specs but don’t give any details. Whatever it is, it sounds like Mac users will have to get their therapy fix elsewhere.
The MFJM53 is primarily a Windows Media device, supporting tracks with and without DRM. But it’s also at home with MP3, WAV and that favourite of the Linux crowd, Ogg, though according to LG, the player will only run with a Windows XP/2000 PC.
LG says that MFJM53 digital media player can be operated merely by using one’s index finger by using its 1.77-inch 128×160 pixel touch-sensitive OLED screen.
