iRiver Siren PN100

iRiver's newly-acquired brand Siren today launched the PN100. The 3.5-inch touchscreen unit is relatively advanced with 3D modes that both point out the distance between cities on longer trips and points out the lanes needed for particular routes. Media playback is also an option for files stored in the free space of an SD card, but adds video support well beyond most devices its size. QuickTime's MOV format and the mobile 3GPP standard are viewable in addition to AVI and MPEG-4 clips, iRiver says. The small device also packs MP3, WAV, and WMA audio playable through either built-in speakers or a headphone jack.

Power is supplied through either a car's 12-volt power adapter with an included mounting kit, or through a battery for three hours of portable use. Currently due to launch in Japan on August 3rd for $334, the PN100 ships with a 2GB SD card with 1.5GB of available space used by map information for the country. Siren in the past has not sold outside of the region but may adapt its GPS unit to other areas through iRiver. [via Impress]
