Take a look at this tasty little number fresh in at Advanced MP3 Players. We had it down as another Far East import but, no, it's just hopped over the North Sea from Germany.It's aimed its sights squarely at little iPod Nano, but has chosen to pack tiny hard disk microdrives rather than Flash-based brains. That's helped it boost capacity to 12GB, while keeping the size and the price firmly nailed down.On the front the oversized bulge is a handy scroll wheel for zipping through the menus. Speaking of which, those mourning the passing of the now ancient but ever popular Rio Karma can finally upgrade because Trekstore has licensed the menu system for this player.Old favourites like Rio DJ are also in there (now called DJ mode) with its options to mix a playlist of favourite tracks or ones not heard from in a while and it does the same gapless playback and crossfade tricks too. Sweet.Trekstore brings a colour screen and album art to the old Rio mix plus an option for an FM radio. A video add-on is promised too, though good luck viewing them on the 1.5in TFT.It's available now but word is a 15GB version is on the way soon, so sit tight if you want a few hundred more tunes for no extra pocket real estate.
