>> Hey, Donald Bell here for CNET.com, and I'm here at CES 2010 talking about the Phillips Activa MP3 player. This is a 4-gigabyte MP3 player that is geared towards the fitness crowd. It's got a lot of features going for it. First of all, it's bundled with a lot of cool stuff that people who are really into the gym are gonna appreciate. There's a pair of earbuds that are included that wrap around the ears. There's an armband included, where you can wrap your earphone cables around when you want to store this in your bag or just take this on the go. And there's also a clip that allows you to attach this to your body and also wrap your earphones around it and stores it when you're on the go. But really, the two features of the Activa that are worth mentioning here that are really gonna appeal to the fitness crowd is that there is a feature in here that matches the tempo of your music that's stored on the MP3 player to the pace of your workout. So if you're jogging really hard, the music is gonna ramp up in tempo, and you're gonna have music that matches the pace of your exercising. And if you slow down, the music is gonna slow down, too. Another interesting things about the Activa MP3 player is that it has a motivator voice that comes in three different settings: a male setting, a female setting, and also a drill sergeant setting, and the voices, basically, they are to keep you motivated, keep you working out, and keep you active. The Activa is due out in April of 2010 for $129.00, and we expect the fitness crowd is gonna be pretty enthusiastic about this. For CNET.com, I'm Donald Bell from CES 2010.
