Iriver releases a literate media player

New model reads e-books while playing audio and video.

With so many e-book readers coming on the market, it was only a matter of time before someone decided to build the technology into another type of media device. And what better way to complement a good book than music?

Iriver's new P10 portable media player does just that, though it's headed only for the Korean market so far. It has 33GB of built-in memory, handwriting recognition, and a 4.3-inch LCD with a 800 x 480 resolution.

If that's a tad small for reading the classics, you can still use it to watch the Simpsons because it supports video playback. But you'll want to figure out how to switch back quickly to Dickens when someone you're trying to impress walks by.
