iRiver keeps on Clix-ing
iRiver's latest iteration of the Clix is even sexier than the original, and it has some hot upgrades, including 30fps video support.
The original iRiver Clix was a design success if not a commercial one, but the new Clix2 looks to do well in both respects. It's got the same clickable-screen faceplate, but the device is much thinner and a bit longer than its predecessor, and the 2.2-inch QVGA screen sports new AMOLED technology (oy, how the acronyms do grow) for extra brightness.
You'll be able to view video (now at 30 frames per second in MPEG-4 and WMV9 formats), photos, and album art; audio support will include WMA, MP3, OGG, and Audible formats. It will come in 2, 4, and 8GB capacities. Nice touches include an FM tuner, voice/FM recording, 25-hour battery life, and switchable MTP/MSC modes. Look for this sexy little number in spring 2007.
