mobiBLU A10 UFO MP3 player
Korean portable digital audio player maker mobiBLU has recently introduced a new type of MP3 player, the A10 UFO. The device can link to other Bluetooth devices and is unusual for building in a 2W flat panel speaker from NXT Technologies. It can play back ASF, MP3, OGG and WMA format files. There is no display, but a vibration function is integrated, presumably to match the device's namesake of Unidentified Flying Object and entertain onlookers while music is playing.
The built-in lithium-ion battery pack is rated for six hours when the speaker is used to play music, or 15 hours via the headphones that connect via a 3.5mm audio jack. The A10 UFO is available in gloss red or black, with 512MB through to 8GB capacities. No pricing or release date information has been announced, though mobiBLU offers its players in the US.
