Mpio FL500 & FY800 are official
Though we don’t understand Korean, we sure do love their products. Designing takes a new meaning when you check out the latest Flash MP3 Player FL500 from Mpio. Fashioned like a triangle, it resembles a futuristic guitar that can be either worn like a necklace or clipped on to your waist belt. The main controller is a circle-shaped scroll wheel with small indentations all around and it’s not “click”-based, which allows for very precise navigation. Featuring Janus DRM compatibility, an FM tuner and a built-in voice recorder along with the negative LCD screen. Next up the less inspiring FL800 though pretty slim (9.85mm), it has SD-expandable flash DAP that comes with basic memory of 1 & 2GB. It offers the same kind of features as the FL500, although the screen is actually a bit bigger, allowing for an additional line of info to be shown.
The FL500 is set to retail at Euro 80 ($102) for 1 GB and Euro 99 ($126) for the 2 GB. The FL800 is set to retail at Euro 65 ($ 83) for 1 GB and Euro 80($102) for 2 GB.
