We were, like, all about the iRiver SPINN when it was revealed during January’s CES 2008 gadget EXPLOSION – and now the silvery thing has an actual UK release date.
It’ll be out here in August and, for the UK market because we’re so special, we’re getting an enhanced model complete with fashionable DAB tuner. We’ll no doubt also get a very, very special price as well. Special as in more than the rest of the planet.
The SPINN was impressive enough to begin with, what with it packing 4, 8 or 16GB of memory, a 3.2″ 480 x 272 AMOLED screen, fancy little spin wheel for easy navigation and Bluetooth 2.0 for dumping your media on it with. It’ll handle MP4 and WMV movies, with the battery giving you five hours of film watching or four hours of DAB listening – but a decent 25 hours if you’re using it for standard MP3 playback.
