Behold the new portable media player, MP5 player. So, what are the features this product has? Would it change your life if you have one? I don’t think so, but it does give new light to portable entertainment. It all started with mp3 players, and then mp4 players emerged. Both types of players have given us a cheaper alternative to portable entertainment. However, times have changed and mp5 players give more features than the two. While mp3 and mp4 players still exist in the market, mp5 players just seem to give us a better kind of entertainment. There is no format using mp5 media; no audio or video format for that, not even game formats. Even so, mp5 players are here and they come in different shapes, sizes, colors, and designs. And hopefully, they will stay in the market for a long time.
You may find that mp5 players are similar to Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) and Nintendo DS. Though the appearance and some of the features may be similar, the price bracket is a little different. It is a cheaper product with limited features; nevertheless, they can still give portable entertainment.
