BLU SENS G14 Media Player
Spain-based BLU:SENS said today that it hopes to improve on the limitations of newer music players with the G14. Unlike the Sansa Connect and Zune, the new player comes equipped with Wi-Fi that can be used to trade songs permanently between users. It can even make its 1GB or 2GB of flash memory available on the network, the company says. Bluetooth is also onboard and will link with A2DP-ready headphones or speakers.
The jukebox is similarly a full-fledged media player and supports JPEG photos as well as MPEG-4 video and music. Recording is an option for voice through a microphone as well as for the built-in FM tuner. Playback is estimated at 20 hours of audio, according to the Spanish firm. The company has not committed to a release date but expects to price the G14 at prices beginning at 180 Euros for the 1GB version. [via OhGizmo]
