i2go introduceert een MP3 speler die gebruikt maakt van het goedkopere CompactFlash geheugen. De opslagcapaciteit is zo'n 96MB. Als je wilt uitbreiden kan dat ook, met behulp van extra CompactFlash kaarten tot 680MB! Het ding is er vanaf $189 dollar.
The stylish, translucent player includes a specific slot for CompactFlash Type II and also acts as a digital voice recorder with a built in speaker and microphone.
SanDisk will display i2Go's eGo MP3 player at the Fall '99 COMDEX trade show in Las Vegas, NV, Nov. 15-19 (SanDisk booth: Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall, L-1509).
The player is bundled with i2Go MP3 Agent software which allows consumers to drag-n-drop MP3 links from the web in an embedded browser for scheduled or immediate download. The MP3 Agent software also includes a managing feature for local and web-synchronized play lists. With each unit sold, i2Go will include a USB cable, two ``AA'' batteries, car windshield bracket, cassette stereo adapter, cigarette lighter power adapter, belt clip and stereo earphones. With a built-in USB high-speed connection, consumers can easily transfer audio files to the CompactFlash card from Windows® based PCs. Other features include multiple play list storage and management. With the i2Go interactive digital audio player, the consumer has the option to purchase a 32 megabyte (MB), 64MB or 96MB SanDisk CompactFlash memory card. Available at i2Go's online store (http://www.i2go.com), the eGo MP3 player is priced at $189.
