The Vibez looks more like a case for Prada sunglasses than it does an MP3 player. And considering how many of the devices are on the market, that's not a bad thing if you want to get noticed.
The slim stainless-steel player from Germany's Trekstor has a 1.5-inch color screen and a 20-hour battery, but video playback and FM tuner are separate. As Trekstor's first player with a hard drive, it comes in 8GB, 12GB or 15GB storage sizes and tops out at $280. Engadget, where we first saw the device, says Tekstor claims it will be available in U.S. stores by year's end.
