Turns out those rumors were true…Bang & Olufsen brings us the BeoSound 3 MP3/WMA player with FM radio and closed-box speaker for mono pumpin' sound. Like the BeoSound 2, it features an SD card slot which you'll need to fill since B&O couldn't squeeze any on-board storage into those 16-inches of tower. That 10-hour rechargeable battery and headphone jack makes this one ginormous pendant-style flash player, or make the most of the sleep timer, alarm, and digital clock for your very own alarm clock. For $850, you buy the right to decide. Following their previous design disaster, the BeoSound 3 actually looks pretty sweet if your pockets roll deep enough.
