La Verne, CA — June 17, 2008 — Nextar, a designer and marketer of bold and new consumer electronic products with mass appeal, has introduced its newest portable media player to its fast growing mobile device lineup.

“Users will find our new T30 portable media player with 4 GB of built-in memory and a SD media slot the perfect solution for enjoying their favorite movies, music, and memories virtually anywhere they want,” remarked Eddy Zheng, Nextar founder. “Its slim size of just half an inch in depth and light weight of just 3.7 ounces allows this player to go virtually anywhere with you.”
The Nextar T30 has a 3.5″ 262k color TFT QVGA display with a resolution of 320×240. The high-quality flat panel LCD offers a brighter display and a smoother motion picture.
