Tech Industry: iRiver SPINN

1:34 /

From CES 2008, Molly Wood takes a first look at the iRiver Spinn, a portable video player which is operated by using a spin wheel on the side and will be available in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB sizes.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com here at CES 2008 and I'm taking a First Look at the new iRiver SPINN. This is a portable video player and MP4 player in fact from iRiver. They're talking mostly about the user interface here, it's called the SPINN because you actually operate this using the little spin wheel here on the side. And then you can actually click to suggest, select items. So, they're saying that this is a pretty fast way to navigate particularly a large list of video. It also supports photo viewing and music playback. It also has an FM tuner and does voice recording, so there's a built-in microphone, Bluetooth 2.0. Now, they say this product will come in 4, 8 and 16-gigabytes. They are saying now, these are two prototypes, so I can't show you the nice big 3.2-inch LCD display, but they are saying that when it launches, the white model will probably be the entry level, maybe the 4 and 8 gigabyte. The silver model will likely be the premium 16-gig model. Now, one thing to note, they are up to 16-gigs, however, there's also a microSD slots, so it's expandable as well. So, that should be pretty good for that video playback. It's expected to launch in May 2008 with prices starting around $229 for 4-gigabytes and again this is the iRiver SPINN, nice small form factor there. At CES 2008, I'm Molly Wood for CNET.com. ^M00:01:25 [ Music ]
