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.
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.
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.
