WSJ.com - Disney Courts 'Tweens With Video, Music Player

Hmm -- looks like a future collector's item to me... 

Priced at $99, the Mix Max is set to hit stores in late October, say Disney officials. The device has a 2.5-inch color screen and comes with enough memory to hold six hours of video or about 240 songs. Disney hopes to court kids and parents by keeping the price well below what it would cost to buy a video iPod.

While it is possible to download music and videos from sites such as Yahoo and Napster onto the device, Disney also will sell in stores its own movies on postage-stamp-sized memory cards that can be inserted in the Mix Max. The company hopes that eliminating the need to download will appeal to parents.
