Philips is pleased to announce the birth of a baby music player - the tiny GoGear SA9200. Just 9cm long and weighing only 48g, 2GB SA9200 is able to store up to 500 MP3 or 1000 WMA music files, or up to 560 photos accessed via Philips’ unique touch-sensitive screen interface. Offering a great combination of features, functions and looks, the jewel-like SA9200 is ultra-pocketable, shockproof and beautiful to look at, thanks to its stylish black onyx-finish casing. Like its bigger brothers in the Philips GoGear family, the SA9200 features Philips’ totally unique backlit sensory touchpad for control of functions, and the acclaimed SuperScroll system for precise navigation.
