Unlike the iPod Touch you won't find advanced features such as Wi-Fi on the P7, but its relatively low price and large, 4.3-inch screen make it a tempting purchase for video fans.

Iriver appropriately describes its main menu screen as magazine-like, laying out each of the player's functions on a single screen, compartmentalized into an attractive arrangement of boxes.

We have some legitimate gripes with the P7, but design isn't one of them. The sleek aluminum body looks like it belongs in a modern art museum.

The majority of the P7 is operated using touch-screen controls, however, you'll find teeny, tiny buttons for power, menu, and volume on the top edge of the player.

The Iriver P7's rated battery life of 35 hours of audio and 7 hours of video is impressive for a device that runs under $200.

Rather than a main menu with text or icons representing the various modes, the Iriver P7's home screen is laid out like a magazine, with a thumbnail of the last item played or viewed acting as the jumping-off point.

A 4.3-inch touch screen dominates the front of the device and acts as the principal controls for the player's functions.

The P7 is flash-based and will be available in 8GB and 16GB capacities. We'd like to see 32GB in a device like this as well.

The bottom of the P7 features a proprietary docking port, which connects to the included cradle. The cradle itself has a secondary battery off of which the player may be powered. There's also a microSD card slot concealed beneath a flap.
