Meizu portable media player finally arrives in the UK

MP3 players

Last month, we mentioned the possibility of the Meizu portable media player heading to the UK. Well, now it’s confirmed – and retailing from £79.99.

The Meizu measures just 79 x 48.2 x 10mm and weighs in at 55g. Yet the flash-based player still manages to pack in a 2.4-inch high-definition TFT display. It’s available in 1GB, 2GB or 4GB sizes and in either black or white. Audio playback is MP3, OGG, WAV and WMA (including DRM), with video playback in AVI. There’s also an image viewer for JPEG, GIF and BMP.

There’s also voice recording, a file browser, calendar, stopwatch and games. Files are transferred via USB 2.0 and the rechargeable battery can offer up to 20 hours audio playback. Strangely, the promised FM radio is no longer mentioned.

Available in the coming weeks and priced from £79.99. Contact Dane-Elec for retailers.
