MP3 gets funkier

CeBit: Nokia shakes its booty to the digital rhythm

Even more MP3 players were vying for attention at CeBit yesterday, with Nokia showing off its soon-to-be-released digital music player designed for use with or without a mobile phone.

The Music Player HDR-1 looks fantastic and will play without having to be hooked up to a Nokia device. Nokia's Music Player needs just one AAA battery to run and will come with a 32MB memory card (not as capacious as PC Advisor would have hoped).

Both Ericsson and Nokia have shown off devices at CeBit (the IT industry's annual European showcase) that aren't phones and aren't dependent on mobile phones to operate. Mobile telcos have had a tough time of late, finding handsets increasingly unprofitable.

Nokia was unable to say exactly how much the device will cost when it hits the shops sometime before Christmas.
