Latte Café 32 GB Video MP3 Player with 4.3-Inch Touchscreen -- Exclusive (Silver)

Here is an excellent selection for best anything but iPod mp3 player. The Latte Cafe has a massive 32GB of flash memory to store your entire library of music, videos, and photos. The player is an exclusive of and a worthy competitor to the iPod Touch and Zune HD. Check out my review here and see my reasons why this is the best choice for you.

The Latte Cafe is made of almost all metal which makes this have a quality feel that other players just don't have. The front of player is dominated by the 4.3" screen. This is the perfect size player for movie viewing on the go. It will keep your kids attention while you’re traveling on the road. Also the 4.3 is much bigger than both the iPods and Zune HD screens. Due to the touch screen the Cafe has a very minimalist design that looks quite attractive. On the back you will find an amplified dual speaker that provides nice sound for personal listening.

Now we move on to the features. The Latte Cafe can playback a large amount of video and audio formats. This includes direct playback of AVI, RMVB, RM, and FLV for video and MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, and APE for audio, and finally JPEG, BMP, GIF for pictures. I was impressed by the GUI of the Latte Cafe. Anyone familiar with a PC should have no problems with the Latte Cafe. All you have to do is simply double click on icons. I used my pointing finger and it was sensitive to my touch. Also includes is a stylus for no smudges on the screen. The 4.3 inch screen is absolutely beautiful and perfect size for movie viewing. I found smaller screens on iPods and Zunes to be harder to enjoy movies. The player has a huge 32GB of memory plus up to 16GB of expansion memory through the memory slot. This provides an amazing 48GB of possible memory for your collection. This puts this right up there with the top of line mp3 players with flash memory. Battery levels are also very solid at 4 hours for video and 10 hours for audio. The dual amplified speakers allow me to instantly watch my videos clips or music without bringing out the earphones. Also you can watch videos on the big screen with the built in TV out. And unlike the other players you don't need a special pricy dock. You just plugged in the included cable and view all your content on your Plasma TV.

Other than music, video and picture viewing you will find a full calendar. The start menu actually shows the current date and time which is very convenient. In addition you will find a stopwatch and text viewer. Also included is a voice recorder for recording lectures.

I can't say enough of this player. It is one of the best mp3 players on the market. I would put this right up there with the top end iPod Touch 3rd Generation and Zune HD. If you’re looking for large capacity solid state flash player that boots up fast, and has a unique and functional interface then look no further than the Latte Cafe.
