Build a business case: developing custom apps

CeBIT 2000 Pine Group will have a portable CD and MP3 player in UK shops from 1 April, the company said today -- no joke, honest. The Hong-Kong vendor is claiming a world first with the product, which will let users play CDs made by downloading music from the Internet via a CD writer, as well as being able to play normal music CDs. With a retail price of £199.99, the D'Music SM-200C on show at CeBIT today was the size of a Discman, but able to play CDs holding ten hours of music -- more than 100 songs. The company said it was in talks with high street retailers such as HMV to stock the product. The player will also be available through OEMs and the channel. Pine also exhibited several prototypes on its stand, including an anti-pirate digital audio player, a pager-sized MP3 player which runs for 11 hours on one AA battery, and an FM radio version of its current MP3 player. Meanwhile, the company has launched a Web site where its dealers can order online.® CeBIT 2000: Full Coverage
