Dell Launches Flash Music Player

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:55 pm

DJ DittyDell Inc., the world’s largest direct computer seller, on Tuesday launched a new flash-memory digital music player designed to compete with the iPod Shuffle.

Dell billed its DJ Ditty as a better value than the Shuffle. Both devices are $99 and come equipped with 512 megabytes of memory, but because the Ditty uses an audio format that compresses digital music files more efficiently, Dell asserts the Ditty can hold up to 220 songs while the same-sized Shuffle stores about 120.

The biggest difference between the devices is the Ditty’s 1-inch LCD display screen, which helps users navigate their music lists. In addition, the Ditty can receive FM radio.
