For the record
It is not a rival to Apple's iPod nano. But the svelte design of Samsung Electronics' new YV-150 voice pen could lead you to believe it is the latest MP3 player. Available only in black, this voice pen measures 33mm x 97mm x 17.6mm and weighs 38 grams, without the battery. It supports MP3 and TS3 audio formats, has a USB 2.0 connection and offers up to 20 hours of power in voice-recording mode. It pauses after identifying a subject has stopped talking and has five folders in which recordings can be saved.
The YV-150 voice pen has two internal flash memory options: 512 megabytes (HK$998) and 1 gigabyte (HK$1,198).
