Tiny iRiver media player flows into UK
It's been some time since digital music player maker iRiver made a splash in the UK, but its Flash-based X20 might just be the device to make waves in this iPod-dominated nation.
The X20 sports a 2.2in, 320 x 240 LCD to display photos, video and song details. The control's a rotary dial linked to a neat-looking circular user interface ready to select any of these modes - or the X20's built-in FM radio. The player supports the Ogg audio format in addition to MP3 and WMA.
The player is available in 2, 4 and 8GB models, but each as a Micro SD memory card slot for more media storage. The X20's removable battery delivers up to six hours' video playback and up to 22 hours' music playback, iRiver claims.
The X20 is available now from UK online retailer Advanced MP3 Players priced at up to £149 for the 8GB model.
