That Mickey Mouse MP3 player we talked about earlier this month looks like it’s turning out to be something real as you can see on the iRiver Korea site. Apparently it will go for around $50 and will have a 1GB memory capacity. The ears, as we suspected, do control the volume and track but it doesn’t look like the Mickey shaped device will be coming to too many destinations. Disney had iRiver make it for retail sale in Korea and for the Hong Kong Disney theme park only, at least at this point in time.
The device is 3cm tall and will come in colors of black, white, blue and the ever popular pink. The features of this player aren’t too impressive and the only thing that really stands out is the fact that its shaped like Mickey Mouse’s head, which may very well be all it needs to become a successful product.
