Another iRiver PMP has just launched. The iRiver Smart HD is a touchscreen mediaplayer with a 3.5" monitor, 8 GB and 16 GB size options, and the ability to take microSDHC cards. The basic model of the Smart HD costs $203, but for $248 you can get an over-air TV Tuner and for WiFi/16 GB you'll pay $310. Another 16 GB version pre-loaded with "Educational content" will cost $265.
Electronista reports that, while the Smart HD is currently limited to Korea, that won't be the state of things for long. iRiver regularly sells their PMPs over here, and the Smart HD has an especially good claim-to-fame. It can support both HD video and MKV files, which is really useful for the unscrupulous legions of torrenters out there. You know who you are.
The Smart HD can handle 18 hours of audio or 6 hours of video on a full charge. If you speak Korean, you can visit the product page here.

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.
