iRiver U10 makes it to 2GB (in Japan)

We kind of wish iRiver Japan wasn't always skipping ahead of the rest of iRiver with their own 2GB players (except Korea, of course), but Engadget fav portable-portable media player U10 is topping off at 2GB over there now, too. It'll set you back ¥22,980 (about $200 US) when it launches the 26th of this month, but be patient, we have a feeling this'll make it Stateside sooner than later (and really, how often do you hear us say that?).
