Siren DP100 2GB Player
Siren has unveiled the latest version of the DP100. The basic MP3 player takes a cue from Apple's first-generation iPod shuffle by incorporating its own lanyard slot, letting the player hang freely from the neck without needing a separate attachment or cap. The device beats its rivals in terms of sheer features, according to the company's claims. Holding a relativlely large 2GB of MP3, WAV, or WMA music, the player also has a two-color OLED for choosing songs. Battery life is also longer than average for the class at 18 hours.
The 2GB version of the DP100 officially begins sales on February 26th in Japan at a price of $82, competing closely Apple's device. A US release hasn't been announced.
