LG FM37 for UK
LG today revealed a Westernized version of the FM37, a major change in its approach to media players. Nicknamed the Touch Me, the device still features a 2.4-inch touchscreen for controlling playback and support for MP3/OGG/WMA tracks as well as H.264, MPEG-4, and WMV movies. In contrast to its Korean edition, however, the FM37 drops the country-specific DMB digital TV tuner in favor of a more universal FM receiver with recording packed in. Its battery is capable of 20 straight hours of music or three hours of video.
Storage size is in tune with the original version, with 2GB and 4GB models selling first in the UK at prices of £129 ($255) and £159 ($314) respectively with tax. LG hasn't committed to a North American launch. [via The Register]
