iRiver's Jack-of-all-trades PMP

iRiver is looking to score big with its forthcoming W10, a Wi-Fi-enabled portable media player that can serve as a GPS and VoIP phone.

iRiver is showing off a few new products at CES, but the coolest among them is the W10, a Wi-Fi-capable portable media player with a 3-inch 480 x 272-pixel touch-screen LCD. In addition to 2GB, 4GB, or 8GB of internal flash memory, this hottie will sport a Mini SD slot for expandable storage. It runs on Windows CE and supports plenty of different audio and video formats (MPEG-4 SP, WMV9, MP3, WMA, AAC, and H.264).

But the niftiest features are the Wi-Fi positioning finder, thanks to a partnership with SkyHook Wireless, and VoIP capability for using the device to make Internet phone calls. Other bells and whistles include an FM tuner, a voice recorder, and a built-in speaker. Don't look for this before Q3 2007, though, and pricing hasn't been announced.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
