How Mini is the Klegg?

There's nothing an MP3 player likes more than to claim that it's a world first at something, and the Klegg Mini is no different.

With dimensions of 48mmx38mmx17mm, it's claiming to be the world's smallest MP3 player with a colour screen.

We don't take such claims lightly at Stuff, but after much diligent work with our compass and ruler, we can confirm that its claim is genuine.

The iPod Nano would appear to be it's closest rival, but has a larger overall bulk with its dimensions of 90x41x7mm, while the coin-sized Eratech EMP-Z2 stands just bigger at 45x53x17mm.

The Q-Be retains its title as the world's smallest music player, but doesn't have the Klegg Mini's colour screen.

Aside from size-talk, the other issue has to be the point of having a screen that's only 1in big. It has a decent 128x128 resolution, and the 512MB version  (there are 128MB and 256MB versions too) can apparently hold up up to 10,000 photos, but your optician won't be happy about extended use.

Still, if you want a talking-point player that can hang off your key ring, it offers reasonable extra functionality with MP3/WMA support, speedy USB 2.0 transfers, a 26 hour battery and a voice recorder.

For more info and to buy one, head over to Klegg's store. The 512MB version costs around £90 plus delivery.
