The Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox combines digital music playback, photo storage and a color display in one 3.4 ounce device.
The device is now offered with 50 percent more storage capacity, longer battery life and a striking new color scheme. It will be available directly from Gateway and at leading electronics retailers for just $249.99.
The newest model, the GCM-6, provides 6GB of storage for housing up to 1,500 MP3 songs, putting a vast library of music favorites always within reach. Sleek enough to fit within a pocket or purse, the Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox is about the size of a deck of cards and weighs just 3.4 ounces. Its stylish new look includes an attractive two-tone silver and black design.
The Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox comes with a replaceable and rechargeable battery, which is a significant advantage, since even rechargeable batteries are perishable. The replaceable battery provides eight to ten hours of continuous music playback on a single charge.
As an added bonus, the Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox can store up to 2,000 digital photos. It can display digital photos one by one or in a slideshow format, which is enhanced by the color screen. The transferring of photos to the MP3 Photo Jukebox is simple as connecting the included USB 2.0 cable between the jukebox and digital camera and following the user prompts. Unlike other players on the market, it can grab photos off cameras or flash cards without add-on interface cards.
Napster To Go -- Unlimited Access to Over a Million Songs
The Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox comes ready to download music content directly from a variety of industry standard sources including Napster To Go which provides unlimited access to more than a million songs for a modest monthly fee of just $14.95. With purchase, Gateway customers that are new Napster members will get the first three months of Napster to Go free. While Gateway customers can chose to listen to songs ripped from their CDs or purchased per track online, they can also use Napster To Go to fill their MP3 Photo Jukebox with the songs they want.
The Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox includes Windows Media Player 10, which provides more music and more choices to Gateway customers, such as built-in access to a broad range of digital music services. Windows Media Player 10 provides an Auto Sync feature that automatically synchronizes customer's digital music collections and photos from a PC to their new Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox.
The Gateway Photo Jukebox works with a wide range of portable music accessories including standard FM transmitters such as the Belkin Tunecast II Mobile FM Transmitter, so enthusiasts can enjoy their personal music library through any FM stereo receiver whether it's in the car, via their PC or home stereo. Suggested retail pricing is $39.99.
A removable and rechargeable Gateway replacement battery allows the user to determine how many continuous hours of playtime are needed. Suggested retail pricing is only $19.99.
