Iriver Rolls Out Its New HD PMP

When iriver unveiled its latest PMP, the K1 Smart HD, several heads turned not only because of its sleek design but also it is one of the few portable media players that support files in MKV format.

Recently, iriver has revealed how the User Interface for its newest PMP works.  The 3.5-inch, 480 x 320 resolution touchscreen displays a menu similar to traditional grid and multi-homescreen interface, much like the iPhone or any Android phone.  It also features Windows CE, which can be a turn-off for some, but it is hard to ignore how it can support a wide variety of file formats, its 18-hour audio/ 6-hour video playback, and the range of versions you can choose from.

The iriver K1 Smart HD PMP is only available in Korea for now, costing 229,000 won (US$204) for the basic 8GB model.  Add a DMB mobile TV tuner and you buy it for 279,000 won ($248), and then it costs 299,000 won ($266) if you want to have a 16GB capacity, and 349,000 won ($310) for the full package with WiFi, DMB, and 16GB of storage.
