TrekStor announces Vibez audio players

Ryan Block, @ryan

It looks like it's still in concept / mockup phase right yet, but quality portable audio company TrekStor (who?) is announcing vibez at IFA. Yes, that logo, the shape of the device, that suggestive title, it's all enough to put the wrong idea into one's head; this player's all about the 20 hour battery life, 8-15GB capacity (wait, do they even make 15GB 0.85-inch drives?), great audio codec support (MP3, WMA, WAV, OGG, FLAC, and PlaysForSure), in addition to its color 176 x 132 display, remote, and 105 x 50 x 18mm (4.1 x 1.9 x 0.7-inch) body. We're still a little unsure about how that interface is supposed to work, but it sounds like come November we'll have a chance to discover ourselves for the princely sum of €199.00 ($255) for the 8GB player or €229 ($293) for the, um, 15GB version.
