Wizpy Coming to US

Turbolinux on Thursday announced the upcoming international launch of the Wizpy, its unique approach to digital media players. The device will bring an English version of the previously Japan-only Linux-driven player and will keep all the device's inherent features. AAC/MP3/OGG audio playback is standard alongside DivX video, JPEG photos, and an FM radio; the device also serves as a personalized home folder that can store portable software as well as e-mail, passwords, and preferences. The Wizpy's open-ended software also lets skilled programmers extend the features themselves, Turbolinux says.

Targeted for a worldwide launch, the device will arrive in North America by mid-June at a price of about $278 for a version with 4GB of flash storage for both media and personal files. An English adaptation of the company's Wizpy Club feature for updates and access to network storage will also be available at the same time.
