9/13/2002 - e.Digital announced its participation in the ThunderDorm Campus Technology Tour 2002, a promotional tour celebrating the convergence of cutting-edge technology and the college lifestyle. e.Digital is showcasing its OdysseyTM 100 and Odyssey 200 digital audio players and TreóTM 15 personal digital jukebox in the BuzzNet Audio Pavilion, where they will be available for live, interactive product demonstrations at all of the selected colleges and universities.
ThunderDorm will visit the popular College Fest in Boston as well as 23 high-enrollment schools with tech-savvy populations and an overall enrollment in excess of 500,000 students. Colleges and universities with scheduled ThunderDorm show dates include Kent State, Rutgers, Tulane, Texas A&M, University of Arizona, Cal Poly Pomona, University of Southern California, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Penn State, among others. The tour kicks off Thursday, Sept. 12 and is scheduled to run through November 15.
The Odyssey 100 and 200 players are perfect for showcasing on the tour. The extremely compact Odyssey 100’s 64 MB Flash-based MP3 playback and amazing 30-hour battery life will appeal to economy-minded students. The Odyssey 200 will appeal to students interested in a combined MP3 player, FM tuner and voice recorder that will enable them to store over 8 hours of voice recordings--ideal for recording lectures or study groups. And the Odyssey 200’s 128 MB built-in flash memory and SmartMedia card expansion slot lets users add up to 128 MB of removable flash. For digital music savvy students, the Treó 15 is attractive as a lightweight, pocket-sized, digital music jukebox with the capacity to store over 4,500 songs, or 225 hours of music, reproduced with extraordinary sound quality.
Jim Collier, President and COO of e.Digital said, "According to the Student Monitor 2001 Lifestyle and Media Study, students plan to spend over $1.1 billion on consumer electronics in the next year, and over 1.4 million students have visited an electronics store in the past week. College students represent the ideal market for e.Digital’s versatile digital audio players, especially our Odyssey and Treó lines. ThunderDorm 2002 provides us with branding and publicity in the much sought-after college market and is expected to increase college bookstore demand for e.Digital-branded consumer electronics products."
