Licensed content goes a very long way, especially among the younger set (as most parents already know). It’s not enough that your kid wants you to buy him or her an MP3 player, they want one featuring the likeness of their favorite cartoon character. I’m not too sure how popular Mickey is among the kiddies these days, but he’s a mainstay and that’s why Runat of Japan has just unleashed the MixStick MP3 player with a button layout that anyone can recognize.
The MixStick will be available in four colors: chrome, white, pink with Minnie Mouse, and blue with Stitch. I can’t really tell if that black blob near the top is actually a display or not (I doubt it), but what I can tell you is that the MixStick measures 107x39x19mm, weighs 40 grams, has an SD expansion slot, and comes with 512MB of internal memory.
