Teclast T39 pushes specs
Asian manufacturer Teclast is preparing a media player that should dwarf any of its rivals in terms of sheer performance, assuming initial reports are accurate. According to the Chinese site iMP3, the T39 will use as much as 16GB of flash memory, which is twice the capacity of Apple's largest flash-based player. It is also said to have 40 hours of battery power, although this could drop sharply when playing videos or Flash games.
Teclast will additionally be selling 2, 4 and 8GB versions of the product, and it should support MP3, FLAC, WAV and WMA audio files, as well as AVI and WMV video played at 30fps. The display is a 2.6-inch touchscreen capable of 262,000 colors; miscellaneous features include a dictionary and an FM tuner/recorder. No release schedule has been made public. [via dapreview]
