Some of you might remember an MP3 brand called MPIO, which was known as a Korean brand doing quite well a few years ago in most overseas markets, with some good brand awareness.
This company was facing some financial issues from past years and disappeared from most markets. There was also no news on new product releases that I could remember.
Now, those staff who were working at development and marketing at MPIO have set up a new company called MPIO International which will carry out the business that MPIO has done in the past. It is a separate company from MPIO; MPIO will start a new business with a new company name.
Specifications and names of models have not been released yet, but it surely looks like a speaker from B&O! It's an MP3 player targeted to be used on your desk or table. Look at the picture below.
It might be able to replace your alarm clock on the bedside table or FM radio on your desk. If my guess is correct, it has a hole at the bottom to be used as a tripod as well. Capacity, prices and date of release have not yet been made available.
Let's see how the new entity will go about trying to re-enter the market after such a long silence.
