Sony's Hi-MD Photo Player

There has been a short period of time that Sony has been swept under the rug while other company's products have taken the spotlight. After that short period, Sony has a handful of new products coming out soon. The smaller Hi-MD player is just a small look into the type of products that will be introduced. Gizmodo did a small review of it and the text is below."Sony's tries at gaining serious ground in the portable media game without the winning against the odds part at the end. Their new Hi-MD Photo player gets a few things right: it's small, which is always nice. The display is a 1.5-inch color screen, and the built in 1.3 megapixel camera is fun, if pointless. But with only 1 GB of storage, even on cheap, removable MiniDiscs, and a current suggested price of $500, it has a pretty steep barrier to entry.On the other hand, all of the new Hi-MD players from Sony play MP3 natively now, which is pretty great.
