Olympus launches 555-hour voice recorder, MP3 player

updated 04:55 pm EST, Tue March 6, 2007

Olympus WS-331M

Following its recent cameras, Olympus has also revealed the WS-331M. A voice recorder by nature, the handheld includes three grades of mono or stereo WM recording that lets it capture as much as 555 hours of dialog on its built-in 2GB of flash storage. MP3 and WMA playback, however, turn the device into an impromptu music player with up to 500 songs.

The device is also one of the few to escape the need for a cable or a dock -- as with other recent Olympus models, the 331M opens to connect directly to a computer's USB port for quicker transfers. One AAA battery is enough to power the device for 21 hours. Models should arrive in US stores by April at a price of $200.
