Iomega, best known of their ZIP and JAZ drives, steps into MP3 markets with their new HipZip MP3 player.
Player uses Iomega's Click! disks, now renamed as PocketZip disks. Player itself comes with two 40MB disks, costing totally $299. Additional 40MB disks cost appx. $10 each, making this as one of the cheapest ways to "upgrade" (not actually upgrading, just carrying more disks with you) your MP3 player's memory.

Player supports multiple formats, including MP3, WMA and AAC (wow!). Iomega has also signed promotional contracts with EMI and other music providers.

Very interesting device in deed, check out Iomega's homesite for more information.
