Apple Knockoff #22383, The M800 From Beond

By David Ponce

So there’s a nascent industry revolving around Apple product knockoffs. I wont get into details, but you get the idea. It seems everything and the mailman’s keychain has a clickwheel nowadays, and it’s with a bit of glee that I welcome this comical new addition to the market, the M800 by Hong-Kong based company Beond. You know, if only for the novelty factor.

If you don’t see why it’s funny, let me spell it out for you. For starters, this is not an MP3 player per se. It’s a CD player that can read MP3s. Yeah, like in 1999 and stuff. Second… it’s shaped like an apple. Not any apple mind you, but one with a nice little bite taken out.

Way to go Beond, you’re setting a milestone here.

  1. Hey, CD-based MP3 players may be half a decade old and all, but if you’re looking for an economical way to bring a really insane amount of music with you, that can’t be beat. When flash memory prices have come down enough that the price is competitive with CDs (which may not be long now), that could work okay. What they REALLY need is an MP3 player with tons of storage that interfaces through SATA 150. USB 2.0 won’t cut it when you’re trying to move 20 GB of music.
