New iPod mini challenger
South Korean-based ReignCom has released a new music player that it hopes will . Agence France Presse reports that ReignCom's new iRiver H10 music player is "similar to Apple's in features and designs -- the rectangular shape with a one-inch hard-disc drive inside and almost the same size. However, the iRiver has extras the iPod does not, like a 1.5-inch colour display screen, higher capacity storage and a longer playing time. The H10 is capable of storing 5GB of music files, compared with the Mini's four-gigabyte hard disk. The iPod mini features a 1.67-inch gray screen above a circular control dial and a removable eight-hour battery, while the H10 offers a 12-hour battery, a built-in FM radio receiver and a voice recorder." The iRiver H10 costs about 10 percent more than Apple's mini, according to the report.
