Toshiba Announces Revamped Gigabeat V

The first-generation Gigabeat V, which launched late last year with a 3.5" (320x240) screen at a 30GB capacity (7.5 ounces), has found a successor. The new Gigabeat V sports a 4" (480x272) widescreen display and is available in two flavours: a 8.6 ounce 40GB model and a 9.3 ounce 80GB model. The Gigabeat V is capable of WMA, WMA 9 Lossless, MP3, WAV and WMV playback. Battery life is listed at a generous 28 hours when playing back audio and eight hours when viewing videos.

According to Impress AV Watch, the Gigabeat V will launch on June 1 in Japan at a price of 49,800 Yen ($410 USD) for the 40GB model and 59,800 Yen ($492 USD) for the 80GB model. It will be available in white, black and Bordeaux Brown.
