MP3 Photo Jukebox

Gateway has now announced its own MP3 player with photo capabilities. The Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox has a mere 4Gb of storage, and will street at US$249.99. The Photo Jukebox uses Windows Media Player 10 to synch up music and photos from a PC to the device, comes with a 1.6-inch vibrant color screen, and weighs 3.4 ounces.

Humorously, Gateway is also taking shots at Apple saying, "The new Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox will make anyone currently on a waiting list for other mini-digital music players think twice". They're also boasting that the Photo Jukebox's battery can go for 8 hours and, more importantly, can be removed and recharged "unlike most other digital music players."

Gateway is only taking pre-orders right now, with shipments expected in mid-November.

Read more from the Gateway press release.

Funny how they are all aiming to dethrone the iPod Mini. It seems like fishing for the Holy Grail.

Well while the photo add-in seems to be a good idea in theory, they haven't quite hit the cool aspects via connectivity: it only uses USB2.0. If you're serious about photos, you want to be able to use S-Video and rig it up to a TV. Otherwise, they may as well have put one of those crappy 1Megapixel cameras in it like a cellphone.

One thing you gotta give them props for is the battery though. Apple would never have done that.
