iRiver B20 Ships

iRiver on Monday officially launched the B20, one of its most full-featured media players yet. The close cousin to the already available Clix 2 expands the LCD to 2.4 inches and adds the critical new component of a digital receiver. Owners can tune into any digital TV station broadcasting over the air through DMB, and also have the choice of catching DAB digital radio broadcasts in areas where the service is available.

Features are similar in spirit to the Clix for those without access to either broadcast standard. An FM tuner provides analog radio; MP3/OGG/WMA audio and MPEG-4/WMV video equally carry over from the smaller design, as does Flash Lite support for simpler video games.

Versions ship this Tuesday with either 2GB ($214) or 4GB ($268) of onboard flash memory, though either model has an SD card slot to load up to an additional 2GB of media. The initial release will target Korea as well as Japan and multiple European companies. A US release as-is for the B20 is unknown and might require support for American digital broadcasts.
