Look, we're pretty calloused when it comes to gadgets around here, but there's just no denying that Reigncom's (parent company to iriver) latest gizmo warmed our hearts at first sight. The freshly-revealed iriver NV mini is essentially a pared down version of the NV Life that hit in March and includes a 3.5-inch touchscreen (320 x 240 resolution), 4GB of internal capacity, a built-in battery good for 2.5-hours, Gini mapping software, a flash card slot for adding up to 8GB of storage and fairly robust multimedia player to boot. Expect it to bring smiles to many South Koreans very soon for ???188,000 ($133).
