Digital Foci Media BuddyBased on a 2.5-inch hard drive with available capacities of 30, 40, 60 and 80 GB, this unit stores a veritable cornucopia of pictures, music and data. The unit's multi-format USB 2.0 memory card reader accesses data on flash memory cards from digital cameras, MP3 players, mobile phones and PDAs. An integrated MP3 player can access and play stored files. To see the detailed information files even under dim lighting conditions, the LCD uses analog circuitry for backlighting. Additional analog circuitry includes a tricolor LED indicator for power and battery charging status. Green indicates power on; red, charging; and orange, power on and charging.
