Introducing the brand new Arianet Neo MP3 player.

Once again we're ahead of the competition in offering you an MP3 player that looks exaclty like the iPod Nano, has all the features yet is half the price.

One of the most sought after gadgets, you no longer have to pay double what you have to.

Seeing as how Apple got such a deal on the flash memory they used, it would be pretty hard for somebody to undercut them on price, I would imagine. And they certainly couldn't make it for half the price!

Copies from other companies are always ugly... they can atleast try to improve the spots that Apple missed.

They certainly could with quality. Or the lack of it. I betcha the Neo only has 256mb memory of something. Or even better, only a DS slot and no memory!
