Yes, it’s another pocket-sized music player, this time from Dutch manufacturer Sweex, which has introduced its Blue Bay range of portable players, the follow up to its budget Black Sea range.
Available in four different sizes – 256MB, 512MB, 1GB and 2GB, the players can handle MP3 and WMA files and feature an LCD display with background lighting (in seven different colours oddly) for viewing your track data. Like most of these devices, you can also use it as a USB storage device, but unlike most of them, this also has a built-in microphone if you want to use it as a voice recorder when you’re out and about.
The Sweex Blue Bay MP3 Player comes with earphones, a USB cable and one AAA 1.5V battery. We’re still awaiting a price confirmation, but we’d expect it to sit firmly in the budget category.
