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 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.
