ODYS PMP Includes Camera, Because Why Not


By Evan Ackerman

There are about a bajillion semi-decent portable media players out there, and most of them are varying shades of “meh.” The ODYS MP X66-NEO (huh?) is no exception. It has a 2.8″ touchscreen, 8 gigs of memory, an FM tuner, does e-books, and has a microSD slot.

Oh, and it has a 1.3 megapixel camera that does stills and video.

Why? Well, because it can, and because the camera makes it different. Does it make it better? Probably not. And for what it does, I’d say the asking price of $125 is a bit steep, unless you desperately need another crappy little camera to carry around in addition to the crappy little camera you probably already have (and probably almost never use) on your cell phone. Hey, you know what else would make an MP3 player stand out from the crowd? A taser. Just you wait, it’s inevitable.
