Lexar offers no-memory MP3 player

The latest MP3 digital music player from Lexar Media may be known more for what it lacks than what it packs. That's because the entry-level LDP-200, which retails for $49.99, comes with no storage capacity.

The device is one of those rare digital music players sold without some type of storage included. Bang & Olufsen's BeoSound 2 also comes without internal storage capacity.

No storage means consumers need to supply their own SD (secure digital) memory card--or pay more for one with a player with storage installed. Lexar is giving customers a choice of three upgrades: 256MB, 512MB and 1GB at $89.99, $119.99 and $169.99 prices respectively.

The LDP series also doubles as an SD card reader, which Lexar says makes it good for data transfer. The music player is compatible with MP3 and WMA music formats as well as Microsoft Windows Media DRM. The player runs on one AAA battery, which the company estimates will last for about 10 hours.
