Kenwood introduces 1GB versions of their MP3 player line that they reported">introduced in Japan earlier this year.
As reported it is pretty sure that those Kenwood players are OEMed from Creative (DMP FX120).
Kenwood just has a really big brand and is able to string a high audio quality story around this rather average mp3 player in Japan. Another theory would be that they further developed the Creative DMP FX120 to make it better. I just do not know.
The news of the new 1GB players is carried by Watch Impress (Japanese). So the new Kenwood players are worth mentioning.
The new Kenwood M1GA3 comes in white, blue and light blue. Features include: MP3 and WMA file support, USB 2.0, 32 hours battery life and FM-Tuner. The Kenwood mp3 player measures 71.3 (W) ×28.5 (H) ×16.5 (D) mm and weighs 39g.
