Panasonic is releasing SV-SD750V and SV-SD350V MP3 players which are based on SD memory cards so you can plug in whatever size you can afford, 8MB to 2GB. It also has a phenomenal battery time of 45 hours and 105 hours with additional battery.
The Panasonic SC-SX800 and SC-SX400 are table top hi-fi systems with built in 80GB and 40 GB hard drives. CDs can be ripped directly to the hard drives and then transferred to the above mentioned portable players via it’s built in SD memory slot.
This seems like a great solution for anyone who doesn’t have a computer. …doesn’t have a computer? Who doesn’t have a computer? Anyway… All of the goods go on sale in Japan in November, but we are unlikely to see them here. Panasonic dose not like to play in the American MP3 player market.
