The Stormblue A9+ might have struggled for recognition in the crowded media player market, but it’s managed to get some attention with one particular feature – Bluetooth – which means it can interact with your mobile.
The player features a 2-inch, 220x x 176, 262,144-colour display and plays back MP3, Ogg, WMA and WMA DRM music files. Microsoft DRM is version 9, but version 10 is coming soon with a firmware upgrade, it would seem. As a video player, the A9+ works with MPEG 4, but bundles software to convert WMV, AVI, ASF and other formats over. The rechargeable battery offers 11 hours playback for video files or 39 hours for music. There’s also an FM radio and the Bluetooth. Pair that with some Bluetooth headphones and say goodbye to wires. And if you have a Bluetooth-equipped mobile, you can link that to the headphones too.
Available with either 2GB or 4GB sizes (with an SD slot to boost storage), you can pick up the A9+ now, priced at £109 and £149 respectively.
