SSI Computer Corp. announced today the release of NEO 25, the first portable 20GB MP3 player that allows users to, not only, store and listen to over 650 CDs or 8000 songs from MP3 files or CDs in MP3 Format, but the NEO 25 also allows users to store pictures, video, e-mail, presentations, and documents to carry with them.
The Neo 25 is about as small as a walkman-type device, yet has the capacity to hold your whole music library as well as other digital files. The Neo 25 provides such features as card-sized IR remote control, backlit LCD display, user-friendly interface, built in equalizer, multi-functional play list, USB port for fast connectivity and downloading, and is compatible with both PC and MAC platforms.
``We are exceptionally proud of our new NEO 25, the outstanding digital audio and storage unit. We are convinced that it will dramatically change the listening habits of consumers. It presents consumers with an extremely high-tech portable device that illustrates a huge leap in portable mp3 technology,'' said James Buchheim, President of SSI USA.
