What is the iBead?
The iBead is an advanced digital music player. You could call it an Mp3 player,
but thats not its only function. It can also play WMA files, it has an FM radio
tuner, Voice Recording, and can be used just like a standard USB Flash Drive.
Its also small, light-weight, and has a bright blue menu screen with an icon
driven menu system. What you don't see from the outside is the internal menu features,
with customisable equaliser settings, backlight control, recording quality, bass
enhancements, folder browsing... and so on. Overall its packed with features,
fun to use, and it plays music!
Note from Author
Well, thats what I think of my iBead. The other part I didn't mention is the
3rd Party software which allows you to modify the icons and graphics on the iBead
and hence add customised logos! This website is essentially a store for icons
and software that you can use with your iBead, so if you own an iBead; I hope
you find something beneficial from visiting.
