The player, available only at Best Buy for $160, can hold up to 1,000 songs and about 14 movies at standard resolution. The player supports Windows Media video and audio files as well as Audible audiobooks and MP3s. It also has an FM tuner with 20 channel presets.
The Insignia weighs 2.4 ounces, has a 2.2-inch screen and is only 4 inches long, about as big as an iPod Nano. Best Buy says the battery lasts about 20 hours on one charge.
Bluetooth headphones — as opposed to just the mono headsets — are becoming more popular, and the Insignia player promises stereo playback through compatible devices. The device has two headphone jacks as well as an audio input jack for recording. If you need more storage space, a MiniSD slot supports memory cards as large as two gigabytes.
The Insignia 4-Gigabyte might not win prizes for looks, but the Bluetooth feature helps it stand out from the crowd.
