Although there isn't an official press release yet, Marantz announced the PMD620 Digital Audio Recorder a few days back at the Podcast and New Media Expo and Josh Bancroft took pictures of the nice-looking, "cigarette pack-sized"* unit as well as the spec sheet. The PMD620 will record to SD and SDHC flash memory cards, has an OLED display, can record from its built-in condenser or external mics, and can record for five hours on a pair of AA batteries. It also has a built-in speaker, which Marantz claims is first in the "pro handheld" category.
Should be $400 when released in November.
* As a smoker, I think the PMD 620 looks a hair bigger than a typical cigarette pack.
