LG takes a Shine to touchy-feely music player

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Updated LG will next month bring its Shine-like digital music player, the Touch Me, to UK consumers looking for an iPod alternative. The name comes from the gagdet's 2.4in touch-sensitive display.

The player packs in 2 or 4GB of Flash storage ready for MP3, WMA and Ogg tracks; JPEG piccies; and MPEG 4 and WMV 9 videos - all played out on its 240 x 320, 262,144-colour screen.

LG claimed the player's battery delivers up to three hours' video playback, but it'll run for 20 hours if you just want to listen to music.

Handy, because the player offers what LG calls a "music therapy" function... something akin to iTunes' visualiser feature, we'd say, but LG's website is silent on the matter.

Whatever, the Touch Me goes on sale next month. The 4GB model will cost £159, the 2GB player £129.
