The Nitro isn’t the most stylish of multimedia players on the market, but it packs a powerful application punch nonetheless. The £50 4GB version is MP3, MP4, WMA and WAV compatible, with built-in speakers as well. A three-mode graphic equalizer should also cater to your musical preferences, with pre-set modes for jazz, rock and classic.

Video can be viewed in MPEG-4 and it also allows you to look at still JPEG pictures. The built-in FM radio can store up to 40 stations and a voice recording function means it could be used as a Dictaphone as well if you so wanted.

A text viewer then allows you the create lists or notes that can be stored onto its memory and viewed again later.

The Nitro is USB 2.0 compatible and its battery will give you up to eight hours audio playback and four hours of video. And should your meeting really drag on then you’ll be glad to hear it will also operate as a Dictaphone for up to 10 hours.

The Datawrite Nitro is available now in both 2GB and 4GB versions. The 2GB retails for around £35 (€51/$69) and the 4GB retails for around £50 (€74/$99).
