Bang & Olufsen, the purveyor of high priced audio products, announced its latest MP3 player today called the BeoSound 6. I guess the 6 in the product name refers to the price, which is a cool $600. What do you get for that much coin? Bang & Olufsen provides a “premium” leather case with the player and says it has enough memory to store 1000 songs, though the exact amount of storage isn’t specified.
The LCD is a 128 x 160 pixel unit that lacks video display capability. The battery life sounds good at a claimed 40 hours. The player is encased in stainless steel and uses a black soft-touch lacquered surface and black scratch-resistant glass. All I know is that it had better sound good since you can get a really cool MP3 player that does video like the iPod touch for much less money.
