    Walletex is currently developing what appears to be the world's thinnest MP3 player. The device is as thin as an average credit card, and can handle water and dust with ease. It can take custom product labels, but has no screen. It should be shipped in June, and there is no mention of price.

    Why? I don't understand if the current standards are too heavy then you need to lift some weights at your local gym or something. I recall the days when you jogged with true AM/FM CD or Cassette Walkmen. You had to hold it in your had while you either walked or jogged. I guess this is something for females perhaps?

    That's like saying there's nothing wrong with having a school bus as your every day car. I'd love an MP3 player that I could slip into a credit card slot in my wallet.

    Easily makeable easily breakable. What is the deal with everyone going smaller and smaller with stuff?

    Smaller size allows more applications, as human size is a constant. You could but a mp3 player on a mug with a speaker and play your own music on a party xD (or something as stupid). Main idea here being, if it's small (and light) enough you'll take it with you all the time. No need to think should I or where to put it. Months ago I saw a sunglass-mp3-player with integrated earplugs, could be usefull for snowboarders for example (not like they don't have enough pockets for a mp3-player :p).

    anyone sticking electronic items in their wallet is not very wise to say the least.
