YES YHD-8G Media Player

YES, a not so famous company has launched a Media Player which can play almost everything. It fits easily in the palms and surely can be an iPod Video for those who does not want enough space. Did I say its just 8 GB compared to 30 and 60 GBs from Apple. It has a Jog Dial which gives a feeling of using iPod with a clickwheel without the click ;). In short, available at around 10k in India, can be a good buy if you don't need that much storage space. But why the hell one would buy this, when they can get the iPod after paying a little higher price. Anyways, here are the features and specifications.
