Here’s another inexpensive DAP from China that’s filled to the brim with features. For $50, the 512MB Ainol V3 offers MP3/WMA/WAV/Ogg audio support, an FM radio, text reader, USB 2.0 interface, and expandability with miniSD cards. The miniscule 1.3-inch screen won’t provide a particularly enjoyable video experience (AMV only), especially given its 160 x 128 resolution, but a 260K-color TFT is great for viewing JPG/BMP/GIF photos. The included lithium battery is user-replaceable and can power the player for up to 8 hours.
The V3 measures 2.36″ x 1.29″ x 0.51″ and comes in white, black, and pink. A 1GB model is also available (for import, of course) for $69.
