Trekstor Vibez 12GB Player

Trekstor today officially launched the Vibez, its long-anticipated mini music jukebox. The player is the first to use a 12GB one-inch hard drive and stores as many as 250 albums, the company claims. Software is also a cornerstone of the design, as the Vibez is the first third-party player to use an enhanced version of the interface and software inherited from Rio, which sold its code to SigmaTel in 2005. The programming gives the new player support for useful formats that even newer players ignore, according to Trekstor: OGG and the lossless FLAC standard can be played alongside newer MP3 and WMA files. The updated Rio software also allows for crossfading between tracks and viewing JPEG photos sorted by EXIF data. Trekstor estimates the battery life at 20 hours and offers line-in as well as microphone recording. The Vibez is compatible with Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows PCs and is already shipping from J&R in 8GB ($170) and 12GB ($200) editions.
