Philips GoGear SA178

We managed to get hands-on this afternoon with the SA178, Philips' latest digital audio player (you might remember that last month a very similar version of this turned up called the SA177), which has 512MB of memory, a two-color OLED screen, an integrated FM tuner, and support for playback of MP3 and WMA files. You can already tell from the pics that it's small, but it's also pretty damn light (not sure exactly what it weighs, since the press releases omits that info) and the screen was crisp and easy to read. Should hit stores in August with a retail price of $119.
