Chinavision offers portable nostalgia with the cassette-shaped MP3 player
One of the quirkiest and indeed coolest MP3 players I’ve seen in a long time is the Chinavision cassette-shaped MP3 player.
Sadly, the technology doesn’t quite live up to the retro design (which also features an image of a record deck on the exterior), with storage of MP3 tracks on an SD or MMC card (up to 2GB) and clunky-looking buttons on the front for accessing your tracks and changing volume. There’s also an earphone socket and a rechargeable battery.
This is a new product, with no price as yet – but looking at Chinavision’s range, it is unlikely to sell for more than £20.
