iRiver introduces in Korea a new thin version of the iRiver Clix.

When the first version of the iRiver Clix appeared in Korea in 2005 it was called iRiver U10. In the United States iRiver started to market this small digital media player under the Clix name. The Clix actually is technically different, because it supports Microsoft’s MTP. Microsoft asked iRiver to make a U10 with MTP to support for instance the music download site URGE. Now iRiver adopts the Clix product name for a new thin (12.8/8.2mm) version of the U10 in Korea. Mistic River moderator Tai Ming Sow pointed out that the new Clix has iriverclix2 written on the back label. Additionally iRiver technicians refer to the new Clix as U20 clix, which is also reflected on the firmware filename. Tai Ming Sow also points out that the clix2 is not MTP specific and can be switched between UMS(MSC) and MTP with in the firmware by formatting the player.

The new iRiver Clix features a 2.2 inch color AMOLED display with QVGA resolution. The new Clix features of course the D-Click interface.
Other features of the Clix include Macromedia Flash UI, MP3, WMA, OGG audio file support, WMV9, MP4 video support, FM radio, text viewer, jpeg photo viewer and SRS WOW HD. Measurements of the Clix 2 are 80.3x46.8x12.8mm. The weight is 55g. Below you see the cool docking station for the iRiver Clix. The 4GB Clix sells in Korea for 199,000 Won (~$211).
More details about the new Clix can be found on the iRiver site (Korean).
clixhere already got their hands on a Clix 2 and published a review with photos.
The new Clix is supposed to arrive in the U.S. in March. An 8GB Clix is supposed to be available in April.
