Hitachi HMP-1, First MP3 Player From Hitachi

Hitachi has released details on their new digital audio MP3 player the HMP-1. The device is about the size of 1 1/2 decks of cards and will weigh in at around 30g without the battery. Pretty standard features; 256mb flash, FM tuner, SD expansion slot, high-speed USB 2.0, voice recording. The player will take 2 AA batteries adding a lot of weight to the device, but it should run for around 13 hours.

You would think that when a company breaks into the MP3 player market they would design a device that makes their mark, not just some standard boring looking player. I would have thought that they would introduce their own 4GB model since they produce the drives for other devices like the Creative MuVo 2.

Pricing and availability is not yet known.
