MobiBLU BOXON

Recent audio player designs from East Asia have centered around a reduction in every element beyond the screen, such as iRiver's designs that remove all visible controls from the front face. The Chinese manufacturer MobiBLU, already known for this technique through its DAH-1500 cube player, will soon release a larger player that still retains a diminutive size relative to its display. Called the BOXON, not much is known about the player outside of its native China. It has straightforward functionality as an MP3 and FM radio player with 256MB of flash storage. As is often the case with MobiBLU, its signature is the design: all the physical controls are at the top or back of the player, leaving much more room for a 1.7-inch OLED screen facing the listener. Details of a North American release are unknown, though the player is likely to appear on this continent following the relative success of the company's earlier players.
