Pocket M@estro maestro packard bell mp3 player ipod mini competitor

Packard Bell, the British PC manufacturer, has announced a new iPod mini competitor: the Pocket M@estro.

It has a 5gb hard drive (more breakable than the 4gb flash drive in the mini), supports MP3 and WMA, and has a FM radio and voice recorder built in.

No information on size but judging by the photo I expect it to be a little wider and thicker than the ipod mini.

Battery life will be 7hrs, and it will be available in September. Priding is likely to be around 200 pounds ($350).
