Dell have announced their competitor to the iPod mini: the Dell Pocket DJ.
The Dell Pocket DJ is a 5GB hard drive based mp3 player roughly the same size as the iPod mini and weighing in at 4.4oz.
It has 25% more storage (5GB), 20% more battery life (10 hrs) but will cost 20% less ($199).
It looks to us like the user interface of the Dell Pocket DJ isn’t as good as the iPod mini or the Creative Zen Touch (especially the “scroll barrel” but the overall design is nice.
Overall if you are in the market for a 4 or 5GB MP3 player this is worth looking at.
