The TurboLinux Wizpy MP3 player

TurboLinux, perhaps best known for its Linux operating system, has a new MP3 player that is sure to interest geeks everywhere. The Wizpy does all the kinds of things you'd expect from a music player these days--MP3, AAC, Ogg, JPEG images, and Divx videos--and has a surprise: A partition with an install of the TurboLinux Fuji operating system. This means you can hook the device up to a PC's USB port and boot into Linux and access installed applications. TurboLinux advertises it as your own OS in the palm of your hand, and it certainly looks that way. The Wizpy will be out in Japan in February with no word yet on availability in other markets, although the Web site says, "Global release will be later in 2007." There's no word yet on price. It weighs just 2.1 ounces, which makes it lighter than most cell phones.
