Korean outfit MobiBLU has introduced a new media player, the Cubisto. Though borrowing the shape of the earlier Cube 2, the Cubisto jettisons the color screen, and also has a shorter battery life at eight hours instead of 10. It will however come in 1GB and 2GB sizes, and play MP3 and WMA files including WMA-DRM. The date of the player's arrival in the US is unspecified; what is known is that a 1GB model will cost $90, and a 2GB Cubisto will run $110.
