With a sleek aluminum body, the new Sorell SF1100 MP3 player is a welcome entry into the crowded DAP market. It's small (56.4 x 56.4 x 16mm and weighs just 37g without batteries) and comes in 256MB and 512MB models. It's feature-rich for a player of its size, with an EQ, FM tuner, direct encoding, and what appears to be a pretty decent LCD screen. Rather than housing a rechargeable battery, the SF1100 runs on three AAA batteries. That's not necessarily the greatest thing in the world, but it does mean that you won't be stranded without music at an airport when your batteries run out - just buy new ones at the news stand for $10 a pop.
