Toshiba Gigabeat V

The demand for mobile media players may have been the driver behind Toshiba’s latest offering in its Gigabeat series. The Gigabeat V has a 3.5-inch diagonal LCD screen, said to be the biggest screen in the current mobile media player market. The V is available in a 30GB model and its enhanced battery life offers eight hours of video playback or 30 hours of audio playback.

The Gigabeat V is the first in the series to feature a built-in speaker for use without headphones. This means users can share video and audio with their friends (and everyone else on the bus) at the same time.

The media player features a 320 x 240 resolution across its 3.5-inch screen. The incorporated Windows media player makes it easier to download and enjoy video and audio. The player connects directly to some digital cameras for instant viewing and sharing of photos. It is compatible with media file formats including wma, wmv, wav, JPEG, and MP3.
