MoS Clip Stix Player
Music company Ministry of Sound is today offering its simple Clip Stix music player. Similar to the recently released second-generation iPod shuffle, the screenless Clip Stix integrates a full-size clip on its back that lets it attach safely to clothes for running or other high-impact exercise. The 256MB flash player can play songs in either MP3 or WMA format and comes preloaded with 10 songs from the Ministry of Sound itself. Battery life is rated at a modest 4.5 hours, according to the company. The player ships soon in black or pink for £30 ($57 US) after taxes, significantly undercutting the price of the entry-level iPod.
