As if you’re not already reeling from the 1GB whale-shaped MP3 player, Toshiba announced today that its Gigabeat V series has bulked up to 60GB. Available in black and white, the $508 V60E PMP features the same specs found on the 30GB U.S. model (MEV30K) except that the TV tuner is back on board and a video recording feature has been added.
Meanwhile, the MEV30T (Japanese version of MEV30K) is getting into the holiday spirit by dressing up as a candycane. Previously available in all black, the 30GB V30E PMP will soon hit the streets of Japan in red and white for about $422. Hmm. Must be a designer paint job or something, because none of the specs have changed.
The V30E and V60E will be ready for Japanese shoppers on November 22nd and December 8th, respectively.
