“Dell is doing its own little ditty. This holiday coming season, Dell Inc. plans to offer three new Dell DJ portable music players, starting with a tiny, flash memory-based model called the Dell DJ Ditty, sources familiar with the company’s plans said,” John G. Spooner reports for PC Magazine. “The DJ Ditty… will come with a built-in LCD screen and an FM radio receiver, two things that are not available on Apple’s flash-based iPod Shuffle—buyers will have to step up to the new Apple iPod Nano to gain an LCD screen, for example—and it’s also planning to add color screens and an option that adds XM Satellite Radio to its hard drive-based Pocket DJ and Dell DJ models, the sources said. The Ditty DJ, which could bow as early as next week, will offer 512MB of memory and cost under $100, the sources said.”
“The DJ Ditty will be packaged with different colored caps that people can install, depending on their taste, the source said. Dell’s new Pocket DJ and Dell DJ models, meanwhile, will come out later this fall, the sources said. Aside from replacing the players’ blue screens with color screens—a feature that also allows the player to show people’s digital photos—Dell will add FM tuners to its Pocket DJ and Dell DJ, sources familiar with its plans said,” Spooner reports.
