ReignCom unveils iriver NV mini with GPS

iriver NV mini GPS device

Korean company ReignCom has unveiled the iriver NV mini, a personal media player with integrated GPS functionality. The device offers a 3.5 inch 320 by 240 pixel screen for viewing maps or video content. The internal memory offers 4GB, with optional expansion to 8GB. The system runs on Windows CE 5.0, with GPS software provided by Korea-based software company Gini. The battery life of 2.5 hours falls below what would be expected from a navigation aide that is designed more for the pocket than a vehicle dashboard.

Although the NV mini name suggests a product close to the original NV, the differences between the two devices are significant. The NV mini lacks the flashy case, side controls, digital camera, and TV tuner of its NV predecessor, although it is priced roughly 75 percent lower. The NV mini will initially only be available in Korea, for a price of 188,000W (~$130 USD). The map software only supports Korean areas, making a North American release unlikely. [via: Hallyu Tech]
