Toshiba Gigabeat T802, V81

Toshiba has announced updates to two of its Gigabeat media players, in the T and V series. The T802 is an upgrade to the T401, and beyond doubling memory from 4 to 8GB, also introduces 802.11b/g wireless, which like Apple's iPod touch can be used to download content. People can not only browse the YouTube-like GyaO service however, but download movies and podcasts, something even the Touch is not currently capable of. The player should be available in Japan on February 15th, at an average cost of 29,800 yen ($279).

The V81 is a follow-up to the V41, and again represents a memory boost from 4 to 8GB. Another major change though is the ability to play copy-protected videos, kept in local memory or on SD/SDHC cards. The player should additionally have improved 1Seg playback and recording quality. The V81 will launch with the T802 on the 15th, but at a price of 34,800 yen ($326). [via Impress Watch]
