iRiver set to ship SPINN

The wait for the iRiver SPINN personal audio player unveiled this summer is nearly over, as the Korean company announced the touchscreen device will start shipping to US customers from October 3 onward. The personal audio players are currently available for pre-order. The 4GB SPINN is priced at nearly $250, and the 8GB version at $290. In other markets, such as Korea, the player can also be had in a 16GB capacity, but all share a 3.2-inch, 480x372 active matrix OLED (AMOLED) touchscreen.

The device features a dial that allows users to scroll through their play lists, fast forward or rewind audio and video tracks or tune the built-in FM radio tuner or DMB mobile TV (supported in Korea, not Stateside) and complements it with touchscreen controls as well. Aside from MP3 and WMA audio file support, the SPINN will play MPEG-4, WMV and rare APE, FLAC, and OGG videos recorded at as fast as 30fps. It will also support Flash 2.0 games. A dictionary is part of the included software, and Bluetooth 2.0 allows short-range wireless communications with compatible devices. [via OLEDinfo]
