    These MusiQ MP3 players are designed to directly compete with the iPod Shuffle. The Steel Wing version of MusiQ, pictured below, comes with either 512 or 1024 MB of onboard memory. It also comes with an SD slot to increase storage, a USB port to transfer music and recharge the battery, and a necklace loop. The MusiQ player is made out of an aluminum-magnesium alloy. The MusiQ player will be available in China on December 15th, and there is no word on when the players will be released for the rest of the world.

    To me it looks like a "dog tag" - what we in the US call the tags worn by soldiers to help identify them. I'm guessing that BenQ might have been going that way with the ad that they were running for it.

    it looks good but seemingly lacks the features of rival priced mp3 players namely the screen, no doubt that will hamper sales
