    I've just had a sneak peek of the first Yamada BeatBox M256 to land in the UK. See the attached photo to show just how tiny it is.
    It's really cool.
    The top speaker unclips to reveal a USB connecter so it can be plugged directly into your PC to store up to 256 meg of MP3s and WMAs on it.
    Or infact 256 meg of any files you want like a normal USB memory stick.
    The quality through headphones was very good and you can specify whether you want the music to output via the phones, speakers or both.
    That kind of flexibility seems typical of the functionality built into this little machine.

    Full spec:
    MP3 and WMA player with 256 MB memory
    Integrated speakers and earphones
    Integrated USB stick, including USB cable
    Negative LCD with 125 colours backlighting (user selectable), 96 x 64 pixel
    Equalizer, Book Mark, Shuffle
    Playback speed selectable
    Voice recording with time, calendar and file name in MP3
    FM radio with Auto Scan and pre-setting
    MP3 encoding by line-in (yes - it rips from CDs itself!)
    ID-3 Tag & auto lyrics display
    Real time clock & calendar support for timer recording
    Navigation by Joy Stick
    Dimensions: 38.6 x 86.7 x 18.7 mm
    Weight: 65 g (incl. battery)
    Li-Polymer rechargeable included
    Charging via USB
    20 h playback (no backlight) at 128 Kbps
    supporting Win 98, 2000, Me, XP / Mac OS 9.1, X 1 & 2

    I am impressed. The price is likely to be in the region of £260.

    Wow! Its so cyborg feel by the looks of it! I did tried search on the website and I love the metallic look of it. The function of this little monster is also so impressive, can't wait to see the real product in the market. Does it come with different size of memory?

    Don't think so at this point. The good news re the price is that it's going to be £200.
