iRiver has been making MP3 players for a long time. Apple still owns the MP3 player market and has since the launch of the iPod years ago. iRiver has unveiled a new MP3 player that looks a lot like the old iPod shuffle.
The new player is called the iRiver T8 Candy Bar. It has an integrated USB port with a removable cap sure to get lost fast. The device comes in eight colors and has a small OLED screen.
That OLED screen shows track and menu information. The player measures 83.4 x 26.8 x 12.7mm and weighs 26g. Supported audio formats include MP3, WMA, OGG, ASF, APE, and FLAC. The battery promises 17 hours per charge and the device will sell for the equivalent of $58 in Taiwan when it launches.
