We’ve started paying a bit more attention to iRiver press releases ever since it revealed some pretty shiny things at CES. Here’s the first fruit of our new-found iRiver love – an update about the iRiver Siren.
The Siren’s not that special, really. We could say something about art-deco-influenced squared design and its simple yet pleasing range of three traditional colours, but that’d all be a bit unnecessary. It’s an MP3 player. It comes in 1GB and 2GB sizes, no doubt with the 2GB one costing ever-so-slightly less than twice the price of the 1GB model to encourage you to go for the extra space. We know all the mind-games they play.
It looks very nice. It has a lovely white OLED screen. It charges via USB so there’s no need to worry about having to squeeze another charger into your chargers drawer. It’s unlikely to ever come out over here. It will, however, go on sale in Japan from February 1st.
If we weren’t already packing six separate gadgets capable of playing MP3s it’d be a shoe-in.
