Dell goes once more into the breach with Wi-Fi MP3 player
Once again proving that the iPod leads the pack where it wants to go, Dell Computers has introduced a new MP3 player for under $100. If you remember the last Dell MP3 player, you know that didn’t end pretty. So what makes the tech world think this will be any different? The answer is Wi-Fi.
Dubbed the “Dell D.J.,” the sub $100 Wi-Fi MP3 will also incorporate Internet radio – which is a great feature. Few MP3 players come with a radio option and taking advantage of it’s Wi-Fi access means that the mobile crowd will be able to enjoy streaming of their favorite radio stations from all over the world. Very nice. There is also talk that the LCD, though small, may be a touch screen, but the buttons on the device itself tend to fly in the face of that wishful thinking.
And although the last Dell MP3 was over priced and was suited better as a paperweight rather than a music player, the price point of under $100 means that Dell has learned a thing or two from that painful less and agrees with Cupertino that the future of music is on the Internet.
