  • Basic features

    The MusicGremlin portable player lets people use a direct Wi-Fi wireless link to access its music store--meaning they don't need a PC to buy and download songs.

    A $14.99 monthly fee lets you grab all the music you want--or at least all that will fit on the 8GB MusicGremlin device--from the MusicGremlin Direct online store. Community features let you browse other Gremlin owners' downloads and swap songs with friends.

  • Dimensions

    The MusicGremlin measures 4.1 inches by 2.4 inches by 0.8 inches and offers a 2-inch, 220-by-176-pixel color screen. The front and back are glossy black, while the contoured sides and the selection pad have a matte finish and a rubbery feel.

  • Side-mounted controls

    The rubbery center selection pad lets you move between menus and choose songs and options, while the on/off/hold switch is on the left side. The volume, play/pause, and forward/reverse controls are on the right. The MusicGremlin also has dedicated volume and player controls.
