You might not be familiar with the iRiver brand of MP3 players, but they’ve earned some good reviews in the last year, mostly for their tiny keychain flash-based MP3 player and the HD player iHP-120 that made it on our x-mas list (but not, unfortunately, actually under the tree).
iRiver’s capitalizing on their success by expanding their product line in a bold way: almost everything in the line is going to have a color display (probably OLED) that doesn’t seem to use much juice. Included in the line-up is the pictured portable DivX player that plays movies from CDR on the 2″ color screen or on a larger TV though video-out. There’s also an HD MP3 player with 2″ color screen, though it’s not clear if it plays DivX. And they’ve got two portable media players with 3.5″ screens — one that’s “Windows Media Center” compatible and one that’s not, the latter being the one you want because it’ll probably play DivX and non-WMA files. Price and release dates as yet unknown, but we’ll keep our eye out.
Looks like we’ve already got something for our x-mas list next year….
