Korea’s iRiver tunes in mobile TV on personal media player
Product news agency AVING reports that Korea’s iRiver has launched the B30, a personal media player with a tuner to receive DMB mobile TV.
For a device clearly targeting mobile videophiles, the 2.8in LCD touch screen seems very small. Perhaps to compensate, the B30 features a G sensor and comes packed with a pair of SRS CS headphones to create 5.1-channel surround sound; four, eight or 16GB of internal memory; a microSD slot; USB 2.0; QVGA support at 30fps AVI video; MP3, WMA, OGG, ASF, FLAC and APE audio file support; and DMB TV support.
Entertainment-hungry customers can get 40 hours of music, five-and-a-half hours of DMB video playtime and six hours of video. At a little less than half-an-inch thick and a hair under 3oz, the B30 is available at a suggested price of $155 for 4GB, $183 for 8GB and $220 for 16GB.
