Media player tries to ride on star power

Click wheel replaced by Mercedes logo.

Global Sources

We're generally not fond of car logos splashed across personal electronics, but this media player deserves some credit for integrating the Mercedes-Benz star into its functionality as well as appearance. With a tri-star logo taking the place of a click wheel, this handheld from NASD Technology is an MP3 and MP4 video player with a 2-inch color display, FM radio, and SD card slot, according to Tech Fresh.

But because it's made in China, we'll go out on a limb and guess that this isn't an authentic Mercedes-licensed product. Still, given that Mercedes seems to have trouble deciding on its co-branded products, this media player may not have any official competition anytime soon.
