Could the PMP industry no longer be enough to hold iriver's attention? The company's first Bluetooth headset, the iriver A100, has been revealed, though we can't help but be disappointed at the lack of any of their usual design flare.
iriver have announced a new PMP, the NV Classic, which not only handles your multimedia playback but also includes a DMB digital TV and radio tuner and GPS navigation. The iriver NV Classic measures 181 x 120 x 21.5 mm and is fronted by a 7-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen and the company's "Magazine" UI.
All alone in a darkened room: what better to do than run through the GUI of iriver's quietly-announced B30 PMP. A discrete appearance on the iriver site back in late May, the B30 distinguishes itself with a T-DMB mobile TV tuner and DAB radio, paired with a 2.8-inch QVGA display. Now we've a full video run-through of the UI and, as is generally the case with iriver's products, it's a beautifully put together system.

iriver US have confirmed that the P35 touchscreen PMP is set to land on American shores this fall. Already on sale in Korea, complete with an integrated DMB digital TV tuner that's unlikely to make it to the US model, the P35 has a 4.3-inch WQVGA display and 8GB or 16GB of flash storage.
In Partnership with Speedo, iRiver created the LZR Racer Aquabeat – an MP3 player that operates underwater for up to 3-meter deep.
The player comes with 2GB of internal storage and supports MP3 and WMA file formats. Just like the shuffle, it does not feature any display; only basic controls such as play, stop, volume controls, and track controls. Battery life is said to last up to 9 hours. It is available in Japan for 12,800 yen (roughly $150).
iriver's P35 Network PMP is finally reaching the hands of buyers, and one of them decided to share the unboxing with his camcorder. Officially launched earlier this month, the P35 has a 4.3-inch WQVGA display, optional integrated WiFi b/g and iriver's new widget-based GUI.

iRiver's P35 PMP could possibly be the company's most MID-like device to date, with a 4.3-inch WQVGA touchscreen good not only for audio and video playback but, in the model with WiFi b/g, a full internet browser. We're still waiting to hear the final judgment on the P35 from a full review, but until then this video demo of the PMP's GUI and functionality will tide us over.

iRiver have officially released the P35 PMP, complete with a 4.3-inch WQVGA display, optional integrated WiFi b/g, 16hrs audio playback and 8hrs video playback. Three versions will be on offer, ranging from the Basic (with no DMB or WiFi, and 8GB of storage) through the DMB (which lacks WiFi but has DMB and 16GB) and finally the WiFi (which has wireless and DMB together with 16GB). iRiver have also also officially released the P7 PMP, which we caught up with at CES 2009.
