MobiBLU CUBISTO – The third in the series

cubisto main MobiBLU CUBISTO   The third in the series

Yes yet another cute cube by MobiBLU. Even though it is the third installment of the cube, it does take a hit on some of the specs from the Cube 2. The CUBISTO will not have video playback and the OLED screen will only be monochrome. But, I don’t think you will be missing much considering the screen is a mere .66 inches. The player will support MP3 and WMA file types with PlaysForSure compatibility. The CUBISTO will come in capacities of 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB. There is no word on the US release of the third cube, but judging from previous releases, you probably won’t see it till mid next year.

This looks alot more durable than the last versions of the cube. I wonder when cnet will get they’er greedy nerdy hands on it. Did they improve the battery life?

Deso…why are you even trying to compare the players in completely different leagues? This cube is meant to be more of a novelty fashion item that plays MP3s, whereas Zen is a utilitarian player that focuses primarily on functionality. People who would be interested in this player wouldn’t be interested in having a video playback (pointless on tiny tiny screen), long battery life OR big storage room (both due to its tiny size) anyways.

Doesn’t seem to wait-worthy. If I was to get it, it’d have to have more choice of codecs. MP3 and Wav only?

Axium on December 25, 2006 7:32 PM

Get it for your mum/girlfriend/some person who is not knowledgeable about specs and just wants a cute-looking thing to wear and listen to. Meanwhile, stick with your own technically superior big guns as you prefer. Everyone wins.

This is a fashion gear.People who don’t care about design would not understand this.It is like a watch. Watch has become a fashion gear. Fashion oriented watches does not have all the numbers from 1~12. But it does it’s basic job. Even if you cannot read exact time.Who cares?It’s all about the look.Ipod shuffle is another fashion gear. It does not have screen.Who cares? It looks good.This is designer’s choice.

Don’t you understand the design of this product?This product isn’t meant to be something that lasts 50 hours long.It’s fashanable and extremely small. That’s enough for this player.Oh I can’t wait for this mp3 player! Go MobiBlu!
