Turning the notion of digital music on its head, Axxen Korea has unveiled the Playdisc, an MP3 player designed to be treated like CD or MiniDisc album. The product was demonstrated at this week's Korean Electronics Show. Mobile Magazine reports that once songs are loaded into memory, users simply plug in headphones, an AAA battery, and go. Because the Playdisc's storage is limited to 128MB, the idea is that a listener keep several players to represent his album collection. Axxen has yet to say when, where and at what price the Playdisc will ship.
