Sharp releases "thin, ugly" MP3 player
How hard is it to come up with something to compete with Apple's iPod? Pretty tough, apparently, if you read Engadget's review of Sharp's MP-B300. For the same price as a sleek, color-screen iPod Nano, Sharp offers up a black-and-white screen, nine confusing buttons, and a slapped-together industrial design. But the Moneycontrol Tech Blog praises Sharp for resisting the looks-are-everything impulse in favor of adding features. The MP-B300 lets users expand its music storage with a memory-card slot, and has a built-in FM transmitter to play tunes on a car radio without having to buy an additional accessory.
