Philips‘ GoGear Spark is a MP3 player that’s pretty cute. From the front it’s a square–a tiny one at that: 41 x 41mm (1.6 x 1.6″). The display is quite nice as well: a 1.46″ OLED display with a quaint 128 x 128 pixel format. That’s good for about 5 lines of text. The GoGear Spark goes on for 27 hours playing your favorite music. It doesn’t play video and you’ll thank Philips for making that decision as you might not want to view video on a 1.46″ display anyway.
FM radio is an option that will cost you US$7 extra. With the 8GB model cost just US$85 it’s one of the cheapest gadgets you can get your hands on that sports a decent color OLED display. cnet gave it a “Very good” rating (3.5/5 stars) for it being affordable and little but dinged it on having little format support, noisy voice recording, and limited storage (that’s because they reviewed the 2GB version).
