PonoPlayer bringing back the MP3 player?

Pono_610x458In writing about the PonoPlayer, I had to wonder when was the last time I reviewed an MP3 player? It seems like before 2005, I was writing about them all of the time. I guess the iPhone killed the traditional iPod, or was it the iPod Touch?

Whatever the case, the PonoPlayer isn’t really an MP3 player per se, as it can support all kinds of audio formats such as FLAC, ALAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, and AAC. You can see its triangular shape, and it is 5 inches high, 2 inches wide, and 1 inch deep. Unlike old music players, this one has 128GB of storage with (64 GB onboard storage and microSD slot for expandable 64 GB storage).

Just to let you know, the PonoPlayer is a Kickstarter project. You can get it for about $300-400.
