iRiver Siren DP350
iRiver's recently acquired brand Siren today launched the DP350, a new entry player that brings relatively advanced features. The 1.8-inch LCD is home to MPEG-4 video as well as photos. Listeners also have an expanded range of audio format support; besides MP3 and WMA, the new player supports AAC songs (including those from iTunes Plus) as well as the more open OGG format. Users looking for more music can also listen to FM radio or capture their own using direct line-in recording.
Siren's player relies on 2GB or 4GB of flash storage, which helps the player last for up to 18 hours of music or five hours of video. It goes on sale today in Japan in black and a rare beige version for prices roughly equal to $118 (2GB) and $153 (4GB). A US release is unlikely as iRiver typically does not export its Siren players to other countries. [via Impress]
