Difference: PlayerHistory (r5 vs. r4)
There is a lot of confusion about who actually "invented" the HD-based MP3 player, and who copied who.
Here is a time line of when major players were introduced.
The Personal Jukebox, or PJB, was the first commercially available HD-based MP3 player. It was created as a prototype personal audio appliance by Compaq's Systems Research Center (SRC) and Palo Alto Advanced Development group (PAAD). The PJB project started in May 1998, and the PJB-100 product shipped in November 1999.
The PJB-100 was manufactured by HanGo Electronics and sold by Remote Solutions. (press release)
After this, many more HD-based players were released that I don't mention here. I only list the following players since they brought something new to the market:
First player with MP3 recording capability. (press release)
First player with 1.8-inch harddisk. (press release)
First player with video playback and recording. (press release)
Introduced at CES 2003. Player with optical S/PDIF input and output.
