Default Hippo Biscuit anyone?

http://jaben.net/forums/index.php?topic=23620.0 Looks like a screen-less clunker.

Reminds me of those "Tank" cases made out of aluminum that were released for the ZV:M years back...

My first thought was a hippo biscuit was like a rabbit pellet.

Looks more like a shuffle than a clip. No screen?

It seems to be a copy of that piece-of-shit "Altman Tera Player". At least THIS one will play other formats besides WAV.

Yeh, me too for some reason. Although to be honest, I think we both found something quite similar.

Could very possibly be made by the same OEM Chinese mfg.

Speaking of tanks, just how heavy is this thing?

Once again, another player that looks interesting at a first glance and then not so much when I take a second glance. I like the look (it looks like it could survive being run over by a tank) and the apparent size, but no screen?

Memory expansion with no decent way to navigate through plenty of files sounds like an exercise in futility, what market were they going for with this?

Maybe the same market that the SlotMusic players were targeted to. The only way I could see this player being even slight practical from a navigation standpoint is if it is designed to only hold a small number of files. But that kind of defeats the purpose of the card slot. Even my old Sony CD/MP3 player (which could only hold about 200 songs on a CD) had a screen to allow usable navigation. It would have been a nightmare to use without it.

I wonder if this would sell as well if it was just a really high quality Sansa clip case? I could easily pay a reasonable sum for a really nice case to satisfy my metal fetish...
