Philips GoGears US-bound

Philips has announced that three of its GoGear media players are scheduled to arrive in the US. Among these is the ViBE, which uses a 1.5-inch display and a battery capable of 25 hours of music or four hours of video. While audio file support is mainly limited to MP3 or WMA files, it can also handle Rhapsody subscription tracks, and Audible audiobooks. Other integrated features include an FM tuner with 20 presets, and automated conversion of Internet video. The player should ship in April, at a cost of $50 for 4GB or $60 for 8GB.

The company is meanwhile planning to bring over the 8GB version of the Opus in the same month, at a cost of $100. Joining it will be 8GB and 16GB editions of the Aria, costing $80 and $100. The latter is notable for its unusual rocker switch, while the former concentrates on providing a 2.8-inch screen. [via Crave]
