Japanese outfit Sunconnection has introduced the SC-VP128SD, a new media player that resembles a gaming handheld like the Gameboy Micro. Instead of playing games, however, the 128 plays MP3 and WMA audio files, and can play videos converted into the ASF format, primarily MP4 files. A camera records still shots and video, while a microphone allows for voice memos. Storage comes in the form of external SD cards or 128MB of flash. Pricing is approximately $83 US.
