iRiver made a press annoucement about the availability of the iRiver iFP-990, iFP-995 and iFP-999 in the UK today.
The iRiver iFP-900 line measures 64 x 51 x 20 mm and features a 1.2" color screen. The battery life is a cool 40 hours. The iRiver MP3player supports OGG, MP3 and WMA audio playback. The color screen can be used to view jpeg and bmp photos.
The iFP-900's features include a built-in microphone for digitalvoice recording, a real-time clock with a music or radioalarm function, and a combined analog and optical (digital) line-in to record external audio signals. We reported recently about the new MPIO FG-100 which also featured an optical connector. Seems to be the new must have feature for high-end MP3 Players.
iriver iFP-900 models with three different memory configurations will be immediately available with recommended retail prices of £169 (EUR 249) for the 256 MB model, £224 (EUR 329) for the 512 MB model, and £270 (EUR 399) for the top-of-the-range 1 GB model. No info yet when the iRiver IFP-900 series will be available in the US.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
