Asono M1

It's not quite as fly as that Mica pendant-style player they popped out back in early 2005, but a new mini media player called the M1 has turned up on Asono's website. This one has a squint-inducing 1.5-inch OLED display, up to 4GB of memory, and supports playback of AVI, DivX, and WMV video files and MP3 and WMA audio files. Battery life is listed as 3.5 hours for video and 15 hours for music. Bonus: if you order now, the M1 comes pre-loaded with Neighbours, a Scandinavian skateboard movie. Apparently "Norway and Scandinavia have had world class skateboarders for decades" and Asono would like to share this fact with the rest of the world.
