[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Hi, I'm Tom Merritt from CNET.com here at CES 2008 and we've got a luxury pimp for you. This is a personal media player from iRiver called the iRiver IAMOLED. This is a mark-up. This is not the real model right now, so I can't turn on the screen for you, but this is an OLED screen for the Samsung display initiative. So, they're working with Samsung to make a nice clear display here, and they put all of the controls here on this side. So, you've got your ability to play music, your ability to play movies. It's got an FM tuner in it and a voice recorder, as well. Also, got a bunch of inputs, you can have a Compact Flash right here on this side, there's an SD Card right here on this side. Also a headphone jack and this is video out, so you can output the video to a display with composite video. This will be available in May. It will be $559 for the 160-gigabyte version, $479 for the 80-gigabyte version. Again, it's the iRiver IAMOLED. At CES 2008, I'm Tom Merritt. ^M00:01:08 [ Music ]
