Haier swings ibiza touch, mini players in US

Haier ibiza touch and mini

Haier tonight added two more players to the Rhapsody ibiza line that both share direct parallels to Apple players. The ibiza Touch (pictured above) appears a higher-end counterpart to the ibiza Theatre that adds a sharper, 2.8-inch 400x240 touchscreen and Wi-Fi, which lets it browse the web, download podcasts and Real Rhapsody subscriptions, and tune Internet radio. It shares the Theatre's Bluetooth for pairing wireless headphones. Battery life drops accordingly and sees the Touch run for just 15 hours of AAC, Audible, MP3, Rhapsody or WMA audio but a relatively long 6 hours of DivX, H.264, MPEG-4, VC-1 or WMA video.

The ibiza Mini is the company's most compact, full-feature player and keeps the Wi-Fi, including its web and downloading features, despite a smaller 2.2-inch display and a hardware directional pad. Battery life is slightly lower at 14 hours of music and 4 hours of video.

Either player will carry between 8GB and 32GB of flash memory; pricing and specific launch dates haven't been provided by Haier. [via Crave]
