Wipzy, the Turbolinux alternative to Ipod.

WipzyThis week some French sites announced the launch of a new Ipod concurrent: Wipzy. This new Mp3 reader has a preloaded Turbolinux OS and plays mp3, ogg, aac, divx and jpeg files. Wipzy, if connected with a computer, could be a bootable linux OS (Turbolinux) with Firefox, Thunderbird, Voip and Skype. The weigth is 60 grams and the player will have a 4 gb flash memory. At the moment the estimated price is USD 250.00 and, in February, it will tested in the Japanese market before being selled in Europe and USA. If these information are correct, perhaps, in the next years, ipod will have a more frightening competitor than Zune.
