PC manufacturer Gateway has released a 1.5-ounce (43g) portable USB storage and music device. The 128MB Gateway Digital Audio Player DMP-200 will be available this week at $129.99, with the 256MB DMP-300, priced at $169.99, being released August 14th.
The product connects directly to a standard USB 1.1 port with a built-in connector, and is powered by a single AAA-size battery. Physically the device is roughly the same size as USB pen-drives, and when connected to a PC, works just like one. No special drivers are required for Windows XP (and probably not for Windows 2000 and ME either), and the unit is visible as a removable drive under the operating system. Both MP3 and WMA formats are supported, and ID3 tags are viewed on a three-line LCD display.
