RCA will be introducing a new 20GB mp3 Jukebox, model RD2821, a successor to the current version, model RD2820. Sporting a new, compact design that slips easily into a coat pocket, the RD2821 includes a USB 2.0 connection, enabling speedy downloads.
The RD2821 plays mp3, mp3PRO and Windows Media Audio files and comes with a full accessories kit, including a stereo line-out cable for connection to home audio systems, and a car kit adapter. Since it is also a hard-drive computer peripheral, the RD2821 can store word processing documents and presentations, and is compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP and Mac OS (drag and drop only). The RD2821 has up to 15 hours of battery playback, has a suggested retail price of $249, and is available in June.
