The ultimate MP3 player for athletes?

A bluetooth pedometer sends info back to the player so you can find out how far you’ve run…

In the coming weeks, you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot about a new MP3 player that isn’t an iPod. In late July, Philips and Nike will begin selling the MP3Run, a 256MB flash-based player that retails for $299 and comes with a separate Bluetooth module that attaches to your shoe. Despite some early speculation, the Bluetooth element doesn’t interface with wireless headphones. Rather, it’s there to wirelessly transmit to the player how far you’ve run–an exciting concept if you do any sort of jogging with your MP3 player. [ZDNet AnchorDesk]
