CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW: CNET editors cover the Next Big Thing
iRiver enters 5GB MP3 territory
with a sleek color player
January 7, 2005; 11:05 a.m.
The prospects: The price tag is about $30 more than most 5GB competitors, so, at first glance, the H10 doesn't seem to have value. But it's one of the most feature-filled microdrive players on the market with FM tuning, a voice recorder, and a removable battery, and it's also the first 5GB model to support photo viewing. Couple that with a simple two-button, one-touch strip interface as well as file and DRM compatibility and you have a serious contender in the portable audio category.
