The world's smallest MP3 player gets a boost in storage capacity

The worldest smallest MP3 player just doubled its storage capacity to 2GB. The 0.63 ounce mobilBLU DAH-1500i packs a ton of features into its tiny 0.94^3 frame including FM radio with 20 presets and record function, built-in microphone and voice recorder, OLED display and supports MP3, WMA and secure WMA music formats. It also features SRS WOW audio technology and its tiny lithium-polymer battery is rechargeable via a USB connection.

Amazon has the new $159.99 2GB model on pre-order in black, blue and silver. The older 512MB and 1GB models, both exclusive to, were also available in orange, pink and red -- expect to see those show up on the new 2GB player as well in the near future.

I'm ignorant because I've had the 4GB Nano since it came out, how much were these in the 1GB/512MB version before? $160 for what this touts isnt shabby at all, although I would be afraid to lose it.

It actually is quite a good deal, but it is VERY small...

i don't like mp3 players/cellphones that are so small that i can't read the screen or press a button without accidentally hitting another one as well. there is such a thing as too small, i hope one day electronics companies figure that out.

Stop whining. Some of us want MP3 players that just play mp3's. And don't have pictures of fruit on them.

its not that tiny but if you have big fingers it could be a problem. Best thing its a no nononsense USB2 windows XP external drive when you plug it in. I wear it around my neck with my name badge I gotta wear anyways. Plug it in for radio listening during lunch and is an excellent audio recorder for getting those important conversations you don't want to miss;>

Walmart's pricing before:

$99 for the 512MB, $130 for the 1GB version. I wanna know if they changed the audio chip at all, as before it produced mid-end sound with just below average battery life. Since the model number is the same down to the suffix, it looks like the only change is the capacity. =\ I may still get one, although the 1GB nano really shook my world at $150...

Korean OEM

There are a lot of similar looking players in Korea, since years ago.

I prefer a stick like device as it's perfect for a screen.
