It’s not that unusual to get a press release announcing a product that takes on a problem, but taking on Apple, that takes serious cahonays.  One thing is for, the Sonix7 Media Pro is cheap considering what you get, but their website is riddled with customer testimonials, which sound as canned as tuna.

Nonetheless, the device features a 3.2-inch (320×240) touchscreen, 20 hour battery life for video and 30 for music, support for SFC and NES game formats, picture viewer, accelerometer and a camera with an unspecified amount of pixels.  Unfortunately, they didn’t get the memo and stuffed a 2.5mm jack into the thing.  Oh, and better yet, it’s not Mac compatible.  Seriously, if you’re gonna take on Apple at least have the decency to put in a universal headphone jack.  The Sonix7 Media Pro is available in 8GB and 16GB capacities for £89.99 ($137) and £104.99 ($160), respectively.
