Nextar introduced the new ‘Ribbit’ MP3 player with durable OLED display that looks like a little frog. The Ribbit supports both MP3 and WMA files and has voice-recording capability and comes in green, pink, black and blue. The ‘Ribbit’ features an eight-mode equalizer with normal, rock, pop, classical, bass, jazz, soft, and SRS WOW; five play modes including normal, repeat one, repeat all, folder, and repeat folder; seven language support including English, Spanish, Chinese Simplified, German, Italian, Portuguese, and French; play-list function; and a high-speed USB 2.0 interface.

Its futuristic, low-voltage, low power-consuming OLED (organic light emitting diodes) display is easily viewable from unlimited angles. It provides brighter, clearer images and faster response time than most other display technologies.

Power is provided by a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, which is included. A fully charged battery provides up to six hours of continuous playback. It is fully upgradeable to any future formats and features. Accessories included earphone, USB cable, Lithium-Ion battery, and installation CD. It is packaged in a ready-for-display, eye-catching colorful blister tube.

The Nextar Ribbit MA589 MP3 player will be available in Spring 2009 at leading retailers across the country. It has a SRP of $24.99.
