Toshiba today announced a new hard drive-based digital audio player with a 60GB storage capacity. The HDD Audio Player Gigabeat line will be available before the end of the year in Japan, along with 10GB and 20GB versions. The devices sport a high-resolution 2.2-inch color display and a navigation system based on a plus-sign sensor. Pricing was not announced. In early June, Toshiba said that it had received an order from Apple for the 60GB drive used in Toshiba’s new player. However, Greg Joswiak, vice president of hardware product marketing at Apple, dismissed rumors of a 60GB iPod.
