Hango Electronics heeft een portable MP3 player met 4,86Gb grote harddisk aangekondigd. Het apparaatje is qua afmetingen vergelijkbaar met een PalmPilot, zo schrijft Wired News:
The current generation of MP3 portables has an Achilles heel when it comes to storage capacity. Whether it's flash memory or memory sticks, you're only going to get an hour or two of music on board most of the first-generation devices.
But a new portable MP3 player manufactured by Korea's HanGo Electronics solves this problem using a 4.86 GB hard drive, which can store up to 81 hours of MP3-formatted music, according to the company. The Personal Jukebox was originally designed in Compaq Computer's research lab, and is set to make its debut on November 15 at Comdex in Las Vegas.
