Photos: TrekStor i.Beat Pink

The TrekStor i.Beat Pink is a sleek, reasonably priced player for fans of the pop star, but there are better flash players available for the average user.

The face and controls on the i.Beat Pink are almost entirely smooth; apart from four tiny raised sensors that make up the center select key, the unit gives virtually no tactile feedback. It takes some getting used to.

The i.Beat Pink offers only one opening on its sleek chassis: a 3.5mm headphone jack. A special syncing cable (included in the package) is needed to make transfers to the device through this port.

TrekStor wisely dedicated half of the face of the player to a 1.7-inch color screen. This helps with navigation, but photos still don't look great on it. We're also disappointed by the lack of album art support, especially with a screen this size.

A "personal" note from Pink along with her signature has been laser-etched into the device's metallic back. You really have to be a fan to appreciate that. Remind you of another player?

With it's shiny, metallic back and clear topcoat, the TrekStor i.Beat Pink looks sort of like the first-generation iPod Nano, decked out in a bubblegum-pink coat of paint. It even comes in black, too--but this ain't no Apple device.

The only mechanical controls live on the (super-slim) right edge of the player. There's a power button and the ever-handy hold switch, which is particularly necessary for touch-sensitive players.

If one thing can be said for the i.Beat Pink, it's that the player is super-compact and pocket-friendly. Now, only if it had good audio quality...

This MP3 player is a partnership with pop star Pink, who is featured in several exclusive photos on the device. (Another, different TrekStor player with a Depeche Mode motif aims at goth rockers.)
