Media player or mobile phone?

It's getting harder to tell

Akihabara News

As mobile phones and MP3 players become increasingly difficult to distinguish from one another, we're tempted to start a contest displaying pictures of gadgets and asking what they're used for. Kind of a geek version of What's My Line?

The South Korean-made "Atree UJ10" could easily pass for a handset from a distance, until one notices the keys, which control the MP3 tunes and video that appears on its 2.2-inch LCD screen. DAPreview also notes that its specs are "eerily similar" to the second generation of the iRiver " Clix2 ," though there'll be no mistaking the two at least for the time being because the UJ10 will be available only in Asia, unfortunately.
