Sanyo is introducing its new ICR-PS1000M Diply Talk in Japan. The PCM voice recorder has a stereo mic and recording system. The device will hold up to 50 hours of music and/or voice. Using a 4GB miniSDHC will give you 5h40/min. if recorded in PCM and 279h30/min. if you use Mp3 (32kb/s.) By the way, it seems that there was a certain amount of discussion about its English name and the fact that it might get “picked on.” If they decide it needs rebranding, Sanyo’s price will undoubtedly go up. We shall see when/if it hits the States in time for this holiday season.
