The MP837 is a portable media player new from Coby in 2010. This player has a 3-inch LCD touchscreen with responsive haptics and accelerometer. There are twenty-two hours of continuous battery life here. The MP837 can play a variety of formats, including music (the OGG container is used to store music files), videos (in Flash, XviD, and H.264 formats), photos and text. There is integrated support for FM radio, ID3 and LRC, which means that song and lyric information is availble to be displayed. Expert reviewers have said that the MP837 is quite an improvement over Coby's previous portable media offering, the MP836. There is an 8GB version for $101.99, and a 16GB version for $127.99.
