iRiver N20 Makes a Return

iriver n20 iRiver N20 Makes a Return

We first heard about the iriver N20 about 3 years ago, before it had an identity crisis and eventually became known as the iriver S10. Now the N20 is back, and the only thing it has in common with the S10 is the name— and the whole MP3 playing thing.

The 26 × 55.5 × 13mm necklace player—which bears a striking resemblance to a 9V battery—features a 4 line monochromatic PMOLED display, support for most audio codecs, and a 15 hour battery life. And judging from the lack of tactile buttons, it’s likely controlled by some type of touch interface. There’s also an FM tuner in there, somewhere.

The N20 will be available in 2 and 4GB flavors which will set you back 649 yuan (about $95 USD) and 749 yuan (about $110 USD), respectively. No word on release dates, or whether or not the N20 will make a very unlikely appearance in the States.

According to other sites it has (approx) 4 tactile buttons on the back

Striking resemblance to Cowon’s necklace player of yore.

Note the headphones in the picture – that would be cool if iriver started shipping similar headphones (in-ear) with all their new players.

The iRiver N20 may have made a return, but the iRiver I once knew has not. :(
