New Music Player Downloads Via Wi-Fi

The $299.99 Gremlin player connects via Wi-Fi to the MusicGremlin subscription service, which offers "unlimited" access to "on-demand" music for $14.99 per month, as well as radio-like programming.

A company called MusicGremlin today started shipping a $299.99 music player that can download songs wirelessly.

The Gremlin player connects via Wi-Fi to the MusicGremlin subscription service, which was built with the help of MusicNet and offers "unlimited" access to "on-demand" music ($14.99 per month), as well as radio-like programming. In addition, songs can be purchased from the site for $0.99 each.

In addition to connecting to the MusicGremlin service, users can use the Wi-Fi feature of the Gremlin to connect directly with other Gremlin users and share music files.

If no Wi-Fi connection is available, users can still browse, select and purchase music, which is later downloaded as soon as an open Wi-Fi connection becomes available, according to the company.

The device has 8 GB of storage capacity, and comes with earbuds, a charger, and a USB 2.0 cable.

The Gremlin wireless digital audio player is available on Amazon.com and the MusicGremlin Web site.
