It actually makes us a wee bit nauseous to see all these low-end Siren devices come from iriver's team of design slayers. Nevertheless, we'll hold down our angst-kebab long enough to tell you about their new DP350 media player. Your ¥17,800 (about $153) takes home 4GB of storage, a 1.8-inch 128 x 160 pixel display, and support for MPEG-4 and WMV video and AAC, OGG, MP3, WMA, and WAV audio. It also features an FM radio which, along with your voice, can be directly recorded to WAV/WMA files. Ironically, the big name players in this category offer devices at the same price with arguably better specs (or at least ecosystems) in DAPs half as thick. So sorry iriver, but you've got us scratching our collective heads over this release.

Optimus Maximus to ship in white?
