For you Volkswagon fans Korean make LG has released a specialty version of their new FM37 player targeted to your facination with German engineering. The New Beetle FM37 comes in a bright, bright red case that can probably sub as a reflector when your car is broken down by the side of the road. It also has a neat little Beetle logo on the back for those who insist on neat little logos.
Like the standard FM37 the player offers a touch-screen display and adds Ogg audio playback to the standard MP3/WMA abilities. Claiming 20 hours of battery life the unit comes in 2GB and 4GB capacities. The player also has MPEG-4 video capability. there is no mention of when the player will become available or a price point, but expect it to be sold at your local VW dealership at least. If they include one free with the purchase of a new car that would be compelling. More likely it will sell with the typical dealer markup, but hey everything at the dealership is negotiable, so who knows.
