Axxen PLEIO Music Player

The music-focused company Axxen says it has prototyped a new music player named the PLEIO. The firm hopes to recreate the visual feedback of CD players on a media jukebox by placing a circular display on top that displays album art as though it were a disc, with navigation controls placed conspicuously at the center. Axxen has not divulged detailed technical information but has said the player is flash-based and will ship with a minimum 128MB of storage. The PLEIO should be ready sometime in 2007 for a currently undetermined price; Axxen says the cost should be low enough that record labels could release albums on PLEIOs instead of CDs and save listeners the trouble of first copying songs to a computer.
