Toshiba enters (raw translation) the market of Hard-drive based MP3 Players or so called jukeboxes.
Besides the i guess market leader Apple iPod, we reported about other hard-drive mp3 players:
Rio Karma
Philips HDD100
Archos av300
RCA Lyra rd2780

The Toshiba Gigabeat G20 features as the model name suggests a 20GB hard-drive that can store around 5000 songs. The Gigabeat is super-thin with 12.7mm (76.5mm x 12.7mm x 89.5mm) and also just weighs 138g.

That makes the Toshiba Gigabeat G20 thinner than the new iPod series!

The iPod measures .62" which is 15.748mm. The Toshiba Player is only 12.7mm.
Watch out Apple!
Other features of the Gigabeat include USB2.0 support and the bundled software works with microsoft media player 9. More description.
