Phillips introduces new line of flash based media players Phillips has introduced a new line of mid-sized flash-based media players, starting with the SA9345 which will come in the 2 and 4 GB variety.
Each of the varieties has a 1.8 inch color screen, but more intriguing is the touch-sensitive controls and the player's size, a slim 0.3 inches.

The device plays MP3 and WMA audio files as well as WMV video. The video files however, are limited to 24fps and software is provided to convert from AVI, MOV, MPEG-1/2/4 and VOB (DVD) files to something compatible for the player.

Phillips claims 20 hours of audio or two hours of video, but independent results have reported only 10 hours of audio playback.

The 4GB model will be available in North America soon, but no word on price. In the UK the players will sell for 99 and 129 respectively.

This is one of the features i think that is going to stand out for Phillips.

It's nice to see other major companies bringing competition to the table in the genre of mp3 devices. Let's see how this one fares.
