If you're jonesing for a touch-screen MP3 player, but the usual suspects are beyond your budget, the new $99 TouchMP player from Memorex may be just the thing. The 8GB MP3 player also supports WMA and WAV audio playback and boasts a 2.8-inch QVGA display, FM radio, voice recorder, video player (WMV, MPEG-4, AVI in MP4 format), Audible audiobook and podcast support, and a microSD expansion slot.

Best of all, the TouchMP is pretty good looking, which isn't something we've caught ourselves saying about previous Memorex players. The TouchMP is expected to hit shelves around spring 2009.
