Oppo unveils wafer-thin Blast media player

updated 02:10 pm EDT, Wed July 25, 2007

Oppo Blast

Oppo (possibly connected to Oppo Digital) today said it would enter business of portable media players with one of the thinnest video-capable players yet. Titled the Blast, the device would include a comparatively large LCD but measure about 6.9mm (0.27 inches) thick; thinner than a CD case, the company touts. Unusual touches also manifest in the touch-sensitive keypad and format support. In addition to conventional music, photos, and videos, the Blast should play Flash videos encoded in FLV, lossless audio in either APE or FLAC, and animated GIF pictures.

Neither a release date nor pricing has not been made public for the media player, which sells first in China. Content is loaded on to the player through microSD and should keep the price down by removing frequently expensive built-in storage. Releases outside of the country are also unknown. [via iMP3]
