mobiBLU Cube2

 

The original MobiBlu Cube (also known by the less catchy moniker of DAH-1500i) was a marvel of engineering in that it packed a boatload of features into just one cubic inch. The next-generation Cube2 is physically identical to its predecessor, except...

Broad feature set. Versatile sound and playback options. Very compact. Works with Macs and PCs.

Included earbuds are odd-looking and clunky. Video conversion is buggy. Screen is extremely small and colors are poor. One-handed operation can be awkward. Short battery life.

The Cube2 is an impressive feat of engineering, but it's less practical than many other flash-based players out there because of its shape and size.

MobiBlu Cube2 (2GB, Pink)

 

The original MobiBlu Cube (DAH-1500i) was as technically impressive as it was just plain adorable, packing music, recording, and radio features into an itsy-bitsy block-shaped player. Now its successor has arrived, and it also has both the "wow" and...

The incredibly compact and durable MobiBlu Cube2 takes the cute li'l shape of the original Cube music player and adds in photo and video support; comes with podcast software and packs in a range of features such as an FM radio, FM scheduling, voice...

The Cube2's menu system is a pain to navigate and requires a lot of clicking to call up new content; viewing your photos and videos on the small screen is novel, but much of the image gets cut out; uses a nonstandard USB cable; no simultaneous picture...

No doubt the cult of the Cube will continue with this new model, the world's smallest multimedia player. While it doesn't offer an ideal user experience, it makes up for it in style.

mobiBLU Cube 2

 

As one of the smallest MP3 players on the market, the mobiBLU Cube 2 is an interesting device. On one hand, it certainly is small enough to attract at...

Tiny

Controls are awkward, Video screen is only 1cms wide, Sound quality a little lacking

If size is your primary concern, the Cube 2 may suit you, but if not there are better alternatives.

mobiBLU Cube2

 

The Cube2 is an unashamed novelty music player with a few nice surprises but a lot of frustrating design and interface issues.

A conversation starter ; Sturdy, difficult to damage ; They weren't kidding when they said it was tiny

Buttons too small ; Screen too small ; Awkward lanyard-style headphones

Having lost its biggest selling point in the wake of the much more publicised 2G Shuffle, the Cube2 struggles to be appealing. It's a cute, diverting little tech toy you can clip on a keychain and impress people with, but its many extras just don't...

The Worlds Smallest MP3 Player Upgraded- Mobiblu Cube 2

 

Mobiblu have updated the unfeasibly small 1" Cube MP3 player. This version 2.0 now has a full colour OLED screen, video playback and a JPEG viewer. We go all fingers and thumbs as we test it!

Buyer Beware - don't buy from MobiBlu.biz

 

The e-mail name says "answer dude", when you actually are lucky enough to win the lottery and hear from him; sadly what he has to say is likely to be of little value and you'll likely be blamed for being unable to read simple instructions (like I was)....

Looks cool

Poor sound quality, utter lack of customer service
