Gateway, Inc. has introduced its first portable USB digital music player. According to the company, the music player features an easy-to-read backlit display and ultra compact design that connects directly to a PC. The company said the Gateway Digital Music Player—reportedly around the size of a pack of chewing gum—is really three products in one easy-to-use device: a digital music player, USB storage device, and digital voice recorder. With 128 MB of storage space, the product is said to have the data capacity of 88 floppy disks or space for two hours of music.

According to the company, downloading MP3 music, transferring files, and sharing digital photos takes only seconds, and is done without the use of cables, software, or floppies thanks to plug-n-play USB connectivity. The product weighs only 1.5 oz and measures just 0.5-in wide. The MP3 player comes with a neck strap, earbud stereo headphones, user's guide, installation CD, and one "AAA" battery, which reportedly delivers 10 hr of playback.

The 128-MB version of the MP3 player, model number DMP-200, is available immediately through all of Gateway's channels at a price of U.S. $129.99. Beginning Aug. 14, 2003, a 256-MB version, model number DMP-300, will be available at a price of $169.99.
