World's First MP3 Player: Eight Songs in Your Pocket

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

The Register has a great little history lesson on the origins of the MP3 player. The first commercially available player was the Saehan MPMan F10, which went on sale in May 1998. The player featured what today are almost laughable specs: 32MB flash memory, a plug and pray parallel port and a tiny, wristwatch-style LCD display. The MPMan was followed a few months later by the infamous Rio PMP300, commonly believed to be the first MP3 player; a mistake probably attributable to the fact that Rio was immediately sued by the RIAA. I guess some things never change.
