As summer comes to a close and the school bell tolls in the minds of kiddies all over this nation it is time for the new flock of digital portables to appear. Creative has already introduced two new 16GB flash units to entice buyers away from the iPod legions and now Toshiba is launching its newest unit.
The Toshiba Gigabeat T401 is that company's latest PMP, offering Wi-Fi as its main draw. The unit sports a 2.4-inch standard aspect ratio TFT color display and handles WMA/MP3/WAV audio and WMV video. Dimensions are 3.37" x 2.12" x 0.38" and the T401 weighs in at 2.04 oz. That makes it slightly smaller and lighter than Creative's just introduces 16GB Zen PMP. The unit ships in October for $258. The T401S is the same unit without the Wi-Fi and retailing for $213.
