iPod gets its first competitor?

E.Digital has unveiled what it claims is the first wearable, voice-activated digital music player. The MXP was developed in conjunction with IBM and can hold up to 32 hours of music and voice recordings. Jim Collier, the company’s CEO, was quoted as saying “We feel it’s going to be very competitive with the iPod.” Mac compatibility is expected around the end of the first quarter of 2002, but comparing it to Apple’s iPod may be a stretch. The USB-based MXP 100 weighs 4.9 ounces and measures 4.3″ x 2.5″ x 0.87″. The standard MXP 100 comes with a 340 MB Microdrive and sells for US$339. A 512 MB version sells for $379, and the 1 GB version is priced at $449.
