Kenwood has been selling portable music players in Japan since 2006. Marketed as “Media Keg”, we last covered the devices back in September 2008, and today Kenwood announced [JP] it has refreshed the line-up after a long time.
The so-called MG-G508 comes with the following specs:
- 8GB internal memory
- microSD card slot, USB port
- sound: 7mW×2 (16Ω)
- MP3/WMA/AAC/WAV support
- JPEG and BMP support (no video)
- 25 hours of battery life
- size: 98.5×46.5×10.5mm, weight: 45g
Kenwood plans to start selling the Media Keg MG-G508 in Japan next week (price: $145), but don’t expect the player to show up anywhere else soon (even though it has a Japanese/Chinese/English menu).
