iRiver offers T8 MP3 player looking like old iPod shuffle

Jun 3, 2010

If you have been using an iPod for a while you probably recall that old shuffle from Apple that was white and had the USB plug hidden by a removable cap that always seemed to get lost. Apple moved away from that style for the shuffle long ago.

iRiver is bringing the style back though with a new MP3 player called the T8 Candy Bar. The player is rounded and comes in white, black, and two pink shades and a few other colors for eight shades total. It sells for about $58 and has been unveiled in Taiwan to start with.

The player has 4GB of storage and measures in at 83.4 x 26.8 x 12.7mm and weighs 26g. The device supports MP3, WMA, OGG, ASF, APE, and FLAC audio formats. It has a 1-inch OLED screen with a 128 x 64 resolution for track information and menus. Battery life is promised to be 17 hours and the thing apparently has a FM tuner and recording capability as well.
