Rio Logo

Still no photos (c'mon, somebody must have 'em somewhere), but a listing for the Rio Chroma has turned up on another retail site. The price is almost the same as before ($319.95 vs. the $316.41 BeachAudio.com had it for), but we managed to glean some more details about it, at least before they pulled them down. Here're the unconfirmed details (and yes, it's supposed to have a color screen!):

  • 20GB hard drive.

  • Support for playback of MP3, WMA, FLAC, OGG, WAV, and Audible audio formats.

  • 16-bit color screen that you can use to view cover art or digital photos.

  • Built-in voice recorder.

  • SDIO expansion card slot for transferring photos to its hard drive from a digital camera.

  • Drag-and-drop for transferring audio files (i.e. no more cruddy software interface).

  • 12-hour battery

  • Docking cradle (presumably with an Ethernet port like the Rio Karma) and a remote control.
