Maxfield MAX-SIN TOUCH
Sometimes a digital audio player can be more than just the technical features. The Maxfield MAX-SIN TOUCH is evidence of this in action. As a player, its features are thoroughly average: MP3, OGG, and WMA can be played during 12 hours of battery life from 1GB of flash memory. What distinguishes the MAX-SIN TOUCH is its extremely minimalist style that could very well trump the iPod nano. The front face is entirely flat, controls and all; even the screen is an OLED display that blents in with the case. The player itself is barely any larger than the nano as well, which makes it a useful alternative for those who want an exceptionally thin player with support for rarer audio formats. No pricing or ship dates have been made available yet, though the player is set to be formally introduced at the IFA expo in Berlin next month. Click through for the full photo.
