Anyone who wants to make an impact in the digital audio player market will find it hard to do so, especially with Apple holding on fast to more than half of the pie. Acer has taken a different approach by offering a built-in Sudoku game into their new MP-340 player. This 20GB digital audio player packs a 1.8″ 262k color TFT screen with a resolution of 160 x 128 pixels, so be prepared to have your eyes checked after going through a few rounds of Sudoku. Frankly, the screen is just too plain small to make playing a joy. Additional featuers include an SD/MMC card slot, support for ACV, JPEG, MP3, and WMA file formats, and a 10 hour audio playback time. Prices range from $280 to $318 in Germany. Chances are the MP-340 won’t make it Stateside.
