iRiver seeks no frills
The iRiver T50 and T60 are budget MP3 players that run on standard AA or AAA batteries.
iRiver is replacing its T10 MP3 player with the T50 and the T60, both of which look a bit odd, in keeping with the whole T series. Available in spring 2007, the T50 and the T60 will have 1, 2, or 4GB of flash memory, a 1-inch color CSTN screen, an FM tuner, and a voice recorder. The main controller is a little joystick (click wheels are for newbies anyway, right?), and you'll be able to play back MP3s and WMAs as well as OGG and ASF files, but not video. These players are for the disposable-battery-loving crowd, and the difference between the two models is that the T50 takes a AA battery and the T60 uses AAAs. Both will give you up to 20 hours of playback time.
