Insignia NS-DVxG Arrives
As much as Best Buy may be a focal point of music player sales, few would expect the company's in-house Insignia brand to offer features that more established companies would miss. However, as hinted at by AVING, the large American retailer is now offering its unique NS-DVxG jukebox for pre-order. Already known to include Bluetooth for a wireless connection to headphones, additional surprises were revealed in the posting. The Insignia player is OS-independent and works with Macs as well as Windows PCs, and includes a significant amount of built-in storage despite its low cost: the range-topping 4GB model ships for $150 and still includes a microSD card slot for an additional 2GB. A less expensive 2GB version retails for $120. Both models should be in stock within the next two weeks and could be a meaningful alternative to the iPod nano for those who prize features over design.
