Toshiba Gigabeat U202

Toshiba ended its week with the introduction of the Gigabeat U102/U202. Released less than a month after the ship date for the U101/U201 series, the flash players have matured their design with brushed metal, a return to Toshiba's signature cross-shaped directional pad, and subtler menu buttons tucked underneath the 1.1-inch OLED. Features are otherwise a match to the earlier versions with an FM tuner/transmitter that can be used to play or record radio, including sharing one's own library with friends. Playback of MP3/WMA/WAV is possible for up to 20 hours in addition to JPEG photos.

The increase in design quality has little impact on pricing, according to Toshiba, with the 1GB U101 available in black or silver for $123. The 2GB U202 will come in the same colors for $148. Both should be available as of May 19th in Japan. Most small Gigabeat models go unreleased in the US, and the company has no current plans for introductions in other regions. [via Impress Watch]
