Wow, today seems to be the day of nano clones. We’ve got another MP3 player coming down the chute that bears a striking resemblance to the popular Apple device, this time from a little known company called ODYS. Their slim DAP, the MP-X10 black, comes with a five-way directional pad (sort of like the Toshiba players), rechargeable lithium-ion battery, up to 2GB of memory, integrated FM radio, lyrics display, and support for MP3, WMA, WAV, AMV, JPG, GIF, and TXT files. Other key functions include video playback, e-book reading, picture viewer, and “additional game.” The 65k-color CSTN display looks pretty good too.
Hudson Entertainment is going to be releasing one for the iPhone and iPod touch “this winter.” Too bad there’s no iPad release, as 10″ screen gaming would have been pretty sweet.
