Look, we’re no stranger to the iRiver Mickey Mouse MP3 player. Kids and women seem to love it, despite the fact that it freaks us the hell out.
Well, iRiver has updated the Mickey on crack cute little player by changing its facial expressions to match the function you’re using. Say, adjusting the volume, skipping a track, shuffling through tracks etc. This just makes it all the creepier. No doubt it will hypnotize children and train them to form some sort of crap-gadget army of the living dead.
Taking some of us completely by surprise, Reigncom has released its Wave wifi phone into the wilds of the Korean market. It’s an iPod Touch type device. It’s basically a portable media player with some extra capabilities, like voice over IP (VOIP), supports music/video playback, photo/text viewer, electronic dictionary function and more. Not a ton of other details, but at least it’s been outted.
According to Reigncom’s President, iriver will be releasing a cell phone early next year. The new iriver phone will be available from Korean carrier KT. The iriver phone concept had been previously spotted by many at CES 2008, but at the time iriver claimed the phone was just a concept. Well, seems like it’s for real now. We don’t have full specs yet, but we know the phone features a large touchscreen, Wi-Fi, and embedded access to Bugs Music Service, as well as handwriting recognition and multiple dictionaries on board. Should be available on March 9th.
The iRiver Spinn is a pretty damn sexy PMP. And so it has garnered a fair amount of interest since shown at CES 2008 earlier in the year. Never fear, soon you’ll be holding one in your hands.
It’s now available for pre-orders. The 4GB model retails for about 164 Euros while the 8GB model will cost you about 190 Euros. It sports a 3.3″ AMOLED display, Supports MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC, ASF audio formats, Supports MPEG4, WM9, WMA video formats, Built-in radio and more. What are you waiting for? Your friends will envy you.
This isn’t your typical run of the mill MP3 player. It’s got stereo speakers, FM radio, a microSD card slot, line-in, and a new D-Click system. Then there’s the large 2.4-inch TFT LCD screen. Did I mention, it weighs just two ounces? This sweet MP3 Player is available in two capacities, a 4GB version and 8GB, both with flash memory. Some color choices are Solid Black, White, Sky Blue, and Pink.
You get a bunch of audio and video formats, Rhapsody, Napster, and Yahoo subscription services, voice recording, text viewer, photo viewer, and more. The battery will give you 5 hours of video playback or 17 hours of music. You wouldn’t expect it to be reasonably priced, but it is, at just $109.99 for the 4GB model or $159.99 for the 8GB version. Nice! You are getting a lot for your money.
There’s gold in them there ears! iRiver is set to sell what it is calling the “assassin’s mace”. This amounts to a Mickey Mouse MP3 with gold paint on it ala Goldfinger.(Or more recently Goldmember of Austin Powers fame) Mickey fans will want to hurry as it’s only available in limited editions.
The design houses a Philips PNX0103ET sound processor. The ears will control the volume and track menu and it has an internal memory of 2GB. It’s very cute in a “If Mickey were a pimp” kind of way, as well as being simple and it won’t cost you a fortune, at $123.
iRiver’s new PMP looks pretty damn sexy. It’s called the Spinn and has a 3.2″ AMOLED display capable of displaying a 480 x272 resolution which is a widescreen format. Video is displayed at 30 frames per second and it can be used as a photo viewer and MP3 player. iRiver also threw in an FM tuner, DMB for those areas which support it, and text viewer. That’s a nice set of features in this great looking PMP.
As far as connectivity, the Spinn supports Bluetooth and USB. Controlling the device is done with a toggle wheel on the right. Memory sizes are from 4GB up to 16GB. Due out later this year the iRiver Spinn is bound to do very well and get very far on looks alone.
iRiver has recently launched another new player through their recently acquired Siren brand of products. September brought their first with the DP250 and now they have released a slightly higher-end sibling called the Siren DP350. Unfortunately these Siren units are only retailing in Japanl.
The DP350 features a 1.8-inch LCD and uses it to show MPEG-4 video and still photos. It also supports audio of MP3, WMA, AAC and OGG. It also houses an FM tuner and direct in-line recording. An internal battery brings it 18 hours of music playback or 5 hours of video playback. It measures only 73.2×41×14.6mm which is a little smaller than a standard deck of cards and appears to have a pretty nice graphical interface navigated by buttons below the screen.
iRiver has announced the launch of the DP250, its first MP3 player through recently acquired Siren. The player is branded as a Siren product but definitely has taken on the iRiver look. The Siren DP250 is a somewhat smaller MP3 player measuring 102mm x 30.5mm x 12.7mm. The DAP will launch in Japan September 7 in 1GB and 2GB capacities for $85 and $120, respectively.
iRiver has released some more detailed specs about the GPS device/media player formerly known as the M10, but now would like to be called the iRiver NV.
The NV has some cool features in a nice looking package which helps it stand out of the crowd a little bit. It’s a SIRF Star III GPS device along with a audio and video media player and houses DMB-T and FM tuners. According to MobileWhack the iRiver NV supports an impressive list of media formats: “AVI (Divx, Xvid, MPEG-4 720×480 @ 30fps) /H.264 (352×288 @30fps), ASF, WMV, MPG, MPEG, DAT, MP3, WMA, OGG, AC3, BSAC”. It even has a GPS tagging 1.3 megapixel camera built in.
Aside from not yet knowing what this thing will retail for the only real bad side we see to this nice list of features is that the NV is only shipping in Korea …
Companies are more often making it easier now to share you music from personal media players with speaker accessories, which I have to say works much better than having to put your heads together and each take an earbud.
This desire to share the sound grows along with more media players that show video since multiple people can watch and naturally would like to hear what’s going on, too. iRiver has a new accessory for the Clix 2 called the iRiver Clix Cradle, and consists of basically little more than an attachable speaker. The Clix Cradle connects directly to the player through a headphone jack and puts out the sound with a 1 watt speaker.
The speaker accessory draws it’s power for an internal, rechargeable battery that can be powered up through a USB connection or from the player itself to deliver around 7 hours of …
The Mickey Mouse head shaped iRiver Mplayer has finally launched in Korea. The Mplayer features a design with functional ears to control tracks and volume with a 1GB internal capacity. It’s priced at around $59 and is now available for purchase, but unfortunately only in Korea at this point. We’ll watch for this to hopefully make the jump to other countries in the coming months.
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, …
The new iRiver NV will be available for the Korean market soon and has just about everything you could want in a PMP. It sports a 7 inch LED display at 840 x 480, T-DMB television, GPS, FM transmitter, 1.3 megapixel camera, 2 SD card slots, a sexy remote control and supports playback of MP3, WMA, OGG, ASF, WMV, MPG, Xvid and H.264 file formats. The device doesn’t look to shabby, either.
The multiple SD card slots could possibly be for both storing media and storing map data separately, and there’s no reason the on-board digital camera could not geo-tag your photos, either. No word on price or if the iRiver NV is coming anyone’s way outside of Korea but this is certainly one to watch for.
