>> Looking for a unique spin on the user interface? I'm Jasmine France and we're taking a look at the iReverse
Spin, a portable media player today, and the cool thing about this player is that it has a very unique user interface, it has a
toggle wheel on the side here in which you can spin to navigate among menu options and you can push down on it to go through menus.
Along with that it also offers a touch-screen interface, so this is a competitor for the Apple iPod Touch. It supports a lot of music
formats including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, 8th [assumed spelling], FLAC, ASF and WMAY and that includes protected WMAY from subscription services and the like.
It also supports photo and video as you would expect from any media player that's its [inaudible]. Along with the standard multi media
support you do get text viewing and FM radio and flash game support, so those are some extras that might be interesting. It has built
in Bluetooth so you can connect Bluetooth headphones for a wireless listening experience, that's something a lot of people are after
now a days. It is a really nicely designed device; it has a really nice feel to it. It's made out of a silver magnesium so it is gonna
cost you a pretty penny though for all this innovation. The 4 Gigabyte version of all this player goes for $249 while the 8 Gigabyte
goes for $289, so it does go for a premium for this innovation, you do get good sound quality, you do get a lot of features, but for
right now I think it's an early adopter type of advice or big iRiver fans or if you're demanding a lot of music format support, that's
what would make it worth it. Other than that, you might want to hold off and see if the pricing drops a little bit in the future. I'm
Jasmine France and this has been the iReverse Spin.
