Venzero creates its own MP3 'Mini Me'

Player looks like a miniature iPhone


As media players and mobile phones continue their mating dance, it's small wonder that they're looking more and more like each other. A new MP3 player from Venzero, for example, may not make calls but does looks something like a miniature iPhone.

The "Mini" is a smaller update to the U.K. company's "MiniOne" released last year. (Will the next version be called "Mi"?) As the overall size got smaller--it's now about 1.5 inches by 2 inches and only a half-inch thick--its screen actually grew to 1.8 inches from the previous 1.5, while offering the same storage options of 1GB or 2GB.

Other additions include pre-loaded Tetris, MusicMarker and other software, according to Engadget. But like its predecessor, unfortunately for us, the unpriced Mini might be destined for Europe. Maybe by the time it gets to the States (if it ever does), it'll have a built-in phone too.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
