MP3 player goes for battlefield look

BenQ makes music players as dog tags

Anything But iPod

MP3 players have already become fashion items and, as they've shrunk to Lilliputian size, we were wondering how long it would take for them to be designed as jewelry. After all, why take pains to sew them into clothing when you can make a statement right on your body?

That's apparently the thinking behind the limited-edition MusiQ from BenQ, an aluminum-magnesium music player that doubles as a dog tag, complete with a metal earphone chain. Anything But iPod says a 512MB version of the player will be available in December for about $88, but pricing for a 1GB version hasn't been released.

We're just happy that BenQ did a decent job in designing it. Because, as special editions go, it could have been a lot worse.
