China-made PMP holds key to unlocking ancient prophecy

Been looking for a PMP that really snaps out of the mold and lightly dances into the realm of the truly daring... and your heart? Feast your eyes on the Shenzhen Shibang New Age Technology S1808 (no kidding), a brand new player that comes across like some retro-future, steampunk-meets-Gundam sidearm from the year 4000. The PMP is housed in a leather-esque casing with an ornate, shielded speaker -- which certainly wins it a few points for originality. In reality, the player is nothing special, featuring a 1.8-inch, 160 x 120 screen, storage capacities ranging from 128MB to 2GB, an optional FM radio, and playback of a few of your favorite formats, like WAV, ASF, MP3, and WMA. Oh, yeah -- it also has a place to attach a lanyard. No word on price or availability, or what kind of alien robot it transforms into.
