I was definitely excited to see iriver’s booth this year at CES since was by far my favorite last year- bright, modern, and fun. I would love to put the iriver booth in my home somewhere; it would be my happy place. This booth was the same as last year with a slightly different layout but it a much better location, not stuck in the corner with the car audio. I did the best I could to share this with you in the form of an HD video below. Please enjoy this along with a general recap of whats new with iriver.
The most recent development on the long awaited W10 (which drew a reasonable amount of interest at iriver’s display at CES in January) is a scheduled release for this November. Although iriver’s products haven’t always been the quickest to make the journey to every country, there shouldn’t be a prolonged wait before the W10 appears in the US as its Wi-Fi based navigation system includes maps and information for ten major US cities.
A handful of images accompanied by some very limited information on forthcoming players from iriver have also spread to iriverFans. These include an unnamed 0.27-inch thick PMP with a 4.1-inch AMOLED, an extremely thin audio player, the previously flaunted 4.3-inch P10, and a range of new colors for the Mplayer.
Furthermore, a claim is made that iriver will announce four additional devices before the year’s end, which will be a hard drive based Clix3 with a 3-inch LCD, two GPS navigation devices (4.3-inch M20 and 7-inch M30), and a necklace player called the N20.
Pictures follow the jump.
We’ve been holding off on covering the slew of iriver DAPs appearing at CES in hopes for some hands-on time, but it seems we’ll have to wait like everyone else for the official releases (most of which are unknown). That’s okay, though, because from what we’ve seen and heard, most of the devices should definitely be worth the wait . . . assuming they’ll be available in the U.S., of course.
In the meantime, let’s take a quick look at everything the lovely folks at iriver have in store for us this year.
