Iriver Spinn: New details, U.K. launch info

Out of the whole new Iriver line-up, the Spinn is the one we're most excited about, despite its daft name.

You may remember the Iriver Spinn from our coverage back at CES in January. What we couldn't tell you about the official successor to the popular Clix 2 is its U.K. release date. But we can now: August.

Out of the whole new Iriver line-up , the Spinn is the one we're most excited about, despite its daft name. The model will still be coming in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities and with DAB radio in the U.K., as well as Bluetooth. It'll also support Adobe Flash video and comes with a 3D acceleration chip, to give its interface a more fluid feel on the 81-millimeter (3.2-inch) 480 x 272 AMOLED screen.

The MP3, OGG, WMA, MPEG-4 simple profile and WMV media formats are confirmed as being supported, but we can now tell you battery life is rated at a fairly average 25 hours for audio, five hours for video and four hours of digital radio listening.

We'll be bringing you our hands-on report as soon as humanly possible, and the Spinn will be available from our chums at Advanced MP3 Players when it goes on sale in August for an as-yet unconfirmed price.
