Oregon's new MP3 player for swimmers
Oregon Scientific is to up the ante in the waterproof MP3 market by offering a revised version of the model it unveiled last year. Due in June the new MP-120 is identical to its predecessor but offers 512MB of storage – four times as much as before. Designed for serious lane swimmers who need a bit of musical accompaniment to keep them on track, the MP-120 works well in delivering MP3 and WMA tracks, though users need to ensure that it is securely attached to their goggles and that its earphones don’t pop out. Ministry of Sound unveiled a similar waterproof player last week.
