Meizu's 8GB M6 Mini Player SL: just 7.3-mm thin and $146

Meizu's second generation M6 is now official. The M6 Mini Player SL (as in SLim) is just 7.3-mm thin yet still manages to increase the viewing angle of the the original's 2.4-inch display. The new M6 is also said to produce better audio quality thanks to a new DSP while adding support for lossless Monkey's Audio (APE) file format. Sure, that slim profile forced Meizu into a smaller battery but the player still manages to pump 26-hours of audio and 4.5-hours of video off a single charge. Hits China on September 25th in 2/4/8GB capacities in prices up to Y1,099 or about $146 of the green stuff -- unreal. Funny how Meizu doesn't make a peep until Apple makes an announcement.
