MPIO has created some truly unique designs in the past, however their latest player does not hold the same originality which some would expect from Korea’s first MP3 manufacturer. The familiar form and interface of the MO100 comes from its clear resemblance to Grundig’s MPixx 2000 released earlier this year.
Even so the MO100 will still handle audio, video, and picture formats in the form of MP3, WMA, WAV, SMV, JPEG, and BMP. While, the 1.8-inch screen only has 128 x 160 pixels and displays 65k colors, FM radio recording and voice recording capabilities are also included. At the moment only a 1GB version can be purchased in Asia, but 2GB and 4GB versions are expected to follow.
