iRiver's NV PMP / navigator hits Korean shelves


As far as elegant design goes, it doesn't get much classier than the iRiver NV, the oversized jog wheel havin', GPS sportin', DMB streamin', music and video playin', Swiss-army-knife of devices. Apparently, the NV has gone from geek-lust fantasy to pocketbook-lightening reality this week, as iRiver officially released the player / navigator to Korean audiences. In case you've forgotten the details, the NV rocks a 7-inch, 800 x 480 screen (plus a small PMOLED display on the wheel), a 1.3-megapixel camera, utilizes a "dual core" processor, runs on top of Windows CE 5.0, and does all the typical media playback (OGG, MP3, WMA, XviD, AVI, AAC, and so on). The player also boasts T-DMB, a SiRFStar III GPS chip, two SD slots, stereo speakers, and USB connectivity. The wonder-device is on sale now in Korea for 498,000 Won, or about $536. Cross your fingers and maybe (but probably not) we'll see this puppy Stateside. For now, check all the NV's angles in the gallery after the break.
