Kubik Edge II 8GB Touchscreen MP3 and Video Player - super value all in one mp3 player

The popularity of being able to have a selection of your music available when you´re out and about has been growing for decades – it all started with cassette players like the Sony Walkman, then progressed onto CD players, and finally with the advent of the digital age the MP3 player.  Sure, everyone knows about the iconic Apple Ipod, Touch and Nano – but there are alternatives out there too, and that´s what we´ll take a look at today.

How about a nice touch screen model? The Kubik Edge II 8GB Touchscreen MP3 and Video Player fits the bill nicely. It has a handy 8Gbyte of storage, not huge I know, but perfectly acceptable and good for around 2000 MP3 tracks depending on the quality you want.

The Kubic has a 2.8 inch touch screen on which you can also view photos and video. The player also has Microsoft PlayFX Sound Enhancement Technology built in to give crystal clear music with 3D, Bass, and Auto Volume adjustment. There´s even a 2 megapixel camera to take photos or videos with. And if that weren´t enough for you there is also an FM radio/recorder, Voice Recorder, and E-Book reader.

Unfortunately it won´t play that old Eagles cassette you found the other day, you´ll have to dig out your old Walkman for that! But at this price, and with all these features, you won´t be left wanting.
