The Coby MP601 is a mid-cost MP3 player available in a 2GB or 4GB capacity. With the Coby Media Manager software, you can easily transfer files from Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 onto the compact (1.61" x 3.18" x 0.39") MP601. The 1.4" color LCD screen (with 128 x 128 resolution) allows you to enjoy MTV format video and JPGs. This screen also displays the song and artist information, provided by this player's ID3 and LRC support. Besides MP3s and WMAs, you can also play FM radio on this player, with the built-in tuner. The 3.5mm headphone jack allows you to output your audio through a stereo system. This player differs from the higher cost MP620 in that the MP620 has a bigger display with higher resolution (1.8" with 128 x 160) as well as a higher battery capacity (350mAh as opposed to 340mAh). The MP620 also comes in an 8GB version. The Coby MP601 gives twelve hours of battery life per charge.
