first look preview, now we've got a date and price for delivery of iriver's X20 portable media player. Starting in March, the X20 goes hot for Japan in 2GB (¥18.800 / $157), 4GB (¥22,800 / $191), and 8GB (¥29,800 / $250) models. Not bad for a smudge-free, audio and video player with a 2.2-inch, 260k color, 320x240 display; built-in FM radio; microSD expansion; and up to 22-hours of MP3 playback off a single charge of it's removable battery -- a nice feature you'll be glad to have on long-haul flights. Still no word on a North American release date, if ever. But there's always your friendly Japanese (or Korean in this case) gadget importer ready to take your order.
