Philips GoGear Connect 3

Philips GoGear Connect 3, da metà gennaio in UK

Giuseppe Tripodi

Ricordate il GoGear Connect3 di Philips? Ve lo avevamo annunciato già a settembre subito dopo la sua comparsa all’IFA e ve lo avevamo anche mostrato in video: adesso l’attesa è finita perché questo lettore multimediale dovrebbe arrivare entro qualche settimana sugli scaffali del Regno Unito.

A confermarlo è stata Philips stessa che ha parlato di un generico metà gennaio ma di un prezzo invitante: con 160£ ci si potrà portare a casa un device con 8GB di memoria interna, dotato di connessione WiFi e Bluetooth, uno schermo capacitivo da 3.2 pollici e sistema operativo Android 2.3 con tanto di Market.
L’azienda, inoltre, assicura che sarà presente una grande quantità di codec integrati nel lettore.

Probabilmente sarà un ottimo concorrente per il fortunatissimo iPod Touch di Apple: adesso non ci resta che aspettare e vedere se avrà fortuna nel mercato anglosassone.

Di seguito il comunicato ufficiale in lingua inglese:
