MobiBlu’s soon-to-be-released DAH-1900 MP3 Player (256mb/512mb/1gb) claims to have the longest battery life of any MP3 player in the entire known universe.
With a curious promotional shot that sees the DAH-1900 perched perilously on a whisky glass, the MP3 Player offers a staggering 153 hours on a single battery charge – nearly an entire week of non-stop playing!
For reasons best known to themselves, MobiBlu have nicknamed the device the “B153” in an attempt to big up the phenomenal battery life offered by the built-in li-ion battery. But we’re going to stick with ‘DAH-1900.’
To help conserve battery life, the DAH-1900 uses an OLED (Organic LED display), with the bright yellow and blue display offering two lines of text and two rows of icons on its 128 x 64 pixel resolution screen.
The display can be used to stream song lyrics for pub-like solo singalongs, courtesy of an editable Auto Lyric system.
Packed into its diminutive dimensions is an FM tuner and FM recorder backed by a timer function and alarm clock which can wake slumbering owners up with radio or MP3 playback.
A built in microphone lets the device double up as a voice recorder, with a Direct Encoding function offering the option to record from external sound sources, such as CD players and Walkmans.
The MP3 player supports MP3, WMA and OGG formats and Winamp/WMP M3U playlists, with six preset EQ modes serving up Normal / Rock / Jazz / Pop / Classic and Live modes
For nippy transfer of files from a PC, the DAH-1900 offers a High-Speed USB 2.0 interface at up to 40 Mbps transmission speed.
There’s no European release date yet, but as it’s already appeared on their North America site a worldwide release is likely some time soon.
