iRiver introduces new SlimX 550

The SlimX 550 offers unmatched style and functionality in an elegant, ultra-thin premium metal case.

The SlimX 550 is the thinnest MP3 CD player with the longest battery life on the market. Customers can easily manage hundreds of standard, MP3 or WMA songs on a single CD with up to 55 hours of continuous playtime*. The SlimX 550 also has a built-in FM tuner, 32 minute skip-free** music playback and upgradeable firmware for new formats and product features.

The player comes fully loaded with iRiver earphones, custom carrying case, four-line backlit remote control, power adapter, rechargeable batteries with built-in charger, external battery pack and a complete car kit for music on the road.

The SlimX 550 supercedes the original SlimX 350 and the updated SlimX 400, which PC World and Computer Shopper gave Best Product of 2002 awards and have received Editors’ Choice awards from CNET, PC Magazine, ZDNet, DesignTechnica and Computer Gaming World.

“iRiver customers have come to expect great looks and powerful functionality from our products,” said Jonathan Sasse, president of iRiver America. “Our design and engineering teams have worked with our customers to create an MP3 CD player that delivers on all fronts: style, capabilities and price/performance.”
