iRiver W10 Teaser

iRiver on Thursday teased with information about the W10, its unique blend of Internet and media jukebox functions first mentioned at at CES this year. The pocketable handheld brings familiar media player functions to the table such as MP3/WMA audio, MPEG-4/WMV video, and an FM radio tuner; courtesy of Wi-Fi, however, it also shares Internet access and uses a specialized positioning system to simulate GPS mapping by judging the location relative to Wi-Fi hotspots. New in the updated page is mention of voice over IP; the 3-inch touchscreen uses an interface similar to the iPhone's for calling and taking messages, according to iRiver.

Keeping in step with its earlier teaser for the UNIT2, the Korean firm gives no hints as to a formal release date or a price for the W10. Its reliance on miniSD cards for storage will likely result in a single version when it ships first in Korea and later for other regions, including North America. [via Engadget]
