Chinese media player uses flowery pitch

Foliage pattern is about its only distinguishing feature.

With Mother's Day still several months away, we were caught somewhat off guard by this new media player from Hong Kong-based Sysbay. The reason: We're not used to seeing gadgets adorned with flowery patterns until that time of year.

But we can't blame the company for trying--after all, if people are willing to buy anything with Hello Kitty 's mouthless face on it, there are bound to be fans of the foliage depicted around the PF500's 7-inch screen, as Engadget says. And that would be welcome news, because it's about the only thing that differentiates this device in a market that gets more crowded by the day with new models.
