Rio Carbon 5GB gets black version, new pricing

Rio Carbon new black and white

Rio Japan is planning to roll out some basically cosmetic changes to the Rio Carbon line on June 15: the price is now going to fall below 200 euros for the 5GB player, which will now also come in black and a white version that looks slightly different from the Carbon Pearl, which seems like overkill but hey, white is in, you know. That black version also looks suspiciously similar to the ce2100 though sans the red lettering, which prompts us to throw a "wtf are you doing with piddling color changes instead of feature updates already?" in Rio's general direction.
