ISTE 2012: Tunes with a View
Kids may be able to figure out how to use most MP3 players, but Califone’s 8201 has a bright info screen so that even the teacher can figure it out. The system costs $172 and has 4GB of flash memory and can be augmented with a 16GB micro-SD card. It’s all controlled with the system’s 3-inch touchscreen that lets you play .mpg, .mp3, mp4, .wmv, realvideo, quicktime files as well as view .jpg images. In addition to including a set of comfortable headphones, the 8201 can limit its output to 85dB to prevent hearing damage. The company is at booth no. 5201.
