Teac MP-550 touchscreen video MP3 player

Teac has added three new mini MP3 players to its line-up. The MP-550 is a touchscreen model that can play AVI movie clips as well as displaying Jpeg, bitmap and GIF images.

The Teac MP-500 has a 4GB flash memory and is able to show photo slideshows and album art. The player weighs 50g and has a 2.4in colour display. It has an FM radio and a voice recorder and comes with 7 EQ presets. It costs €99 and is available now. A 2GB version is available for €79.

The two other new players in the Teac line-up are smaller yet. The MP-277 weighs 35g and has a 1.8in screen, clickwheel to select songs and, in common with its (relatively) big brother, offers ID3 tag support for songs. As with the Teac MP550, it can play video - in Mpeg4 format - and has both a touchscreen and an FM player and voice recorder. The MP-277 costs €39 for the 1GB version and €79 for the 4GB capacity model.

The Teac MP-233, meanwhile, has a 1.5in display, weighs 25g and plays music but lacks the FM tuner found on the other two mini players. All three can display photos.
