Called the Oceanic DV-64, it’s aimed mainly at scuba divers and can be used down to a depth of 200 metres. But there’s no reason why you couldn’t use it in your local baths, providing you can find somewhere to strap it!
Features include two speakers, ear phones, 64Mb internal storage and a voice recorder. It’s now available in the US for $399. There are versions with larger storage capacity with the top-end 512MB model selling for a rather hefty $600.
There are no plans to launch in the UK/Europe at the mo. A spokesperson for the company did however say that huge demand for the players could bring about a Euro launch. Here’s hoping.
