Intoducing the Mobiblu Boxon: the tiny video-playin’ Skype-talkin’ N.K.O.T.B.

16 01 2007


That’s right, I just said NKOTB. (That’s New Kids on The Block for you poor souls over 30). Mobiblu snuck this little bad boy past us amidst the craziness that was CES 2007; but it looks like a formidable contender in the ultra-portable DAP space. The Boxon really is TINY, but manages to cram 2 gigabytes of storage, a crisp OLED video display, FM radio, line-in recording, and even Ogg Vorbis (audiophile) playback into it’s sleek, thin metal casing.
Is that all? Oh you thought that was all! No, it’s also got Skype. This means you can plug it into any connected computer and use the headphones and builtin microphone to make and receive those sweet-sweet free Internet phone calls.
No word on pricing or availablility yet (typical…)

Hey Mobiblu! I’d be happy to beta test one for ya. You never know how such a small device could react to our fat American fingers.

For the “poor souls over 30” remark: FUCK YOU!

received my boxon yesterday and i’ll tell you that it was definitely not designed with fat fingers in mind. the tiny buttons make working the navigation very difficult.
