Arko ultraslim MP3 player

MP3 players

I have to admit, I don’t know a great deal about Arko, but I do know this ultraslim MP3 player, which was unveiled at Computex, is a pretty stylish item.

It’s very slim, but still packs in plenty of functionality. It features a colour backlit display, multiple equaliser modes, a built-in FM tuner, voice recording and USB 2.0 connectivity. It’s unclear which file formats the device supports, but it does cover at least MP3 and WMA. And as a plug ‘n’ play device, it can also be used as a personal storage unit for documents, files and images without the need for drivers.

Hopefully we’ll see this in the UK, but as yet there’s no price or availability confirmed.
