Toshiba's Gigabeat T is a smaller, lighter, less expensive version of one of our favorite MP3 players, the Gigabeat S.

On the left we have the Toshiba Gigabeat T--a video-worthy, Flash-based MP3 player that is an ideal extension of Windows Media Player. On the right we have the third-gen iPod Nano--a video-worthy, Flash-based MP3 player that is an ideal extension of Apple's iTunes software. Eeny, meeny, miny, moe...
The versatile Toshiba PlusPad control can be easily adapted for either portrait or landscape viewing. Pressing the Windows flag button in the bottom left corner of the PlusPad brings up the main menu from any screen.
The Toshiba Gigabeat T takes most of the functions of the beloved Gigabeat S portable video player, but shrinks it down to a bite-size device. Unlike the Gigabeat S, the T has no problem going unnoticed in your pocket.
