Sharp launches new MP3 players that can survive a drop

Are you a major klutz? Have you wrecked your iPod by dropping it? Well, Sharp has the answer for you. The MP-S200 (512MB) and MP-S300 (1GB) are mp3 players with a honeycombed aluminum case and protective carabineer around it. That means that you can safely drop it from more than three feet without damaging it.

The player has less than overwhelming memory, but it does have a few features – FM tuner and transmitter, direct encoding, MP3 and WMA support and USB 2.0. You can use the carabineer to attach the player to your belt, but I am certain that that fashion crime is a bad idea.

The player comes in four colors and will be available in Japan on November 26th. No word on price yet.
