The Asono Play

Asono Play

Ah, the Asono Mica—you remember the one, don't you? Well, they've a new low-priced version of the device called the Play, which they're gunnin' to compete directly with the shuffle since it's got no screen (and a similar pricetag). And what do you know, it's even got a little something they call sound navigation to help you figure out your way around folder trees and the device's various settings without a display. And yes, it still comes in 512MB and 1GB sizes, plays MP3, PlaysForSure WMA, and ASF, and is just cute as a button.

P.S. It finally comes in black, too.
