The stylish new 5GB players come in four colors (Lounge Gray, Remix Blue, Trance Red and Triple Platinum) and offer vivid, color screens for viewing photos. “The smaller drive MP3 player has become widely popular in today’s market, because it offers a balance between size and functionality,”said Cindy McCurley, industry analyst, Converging Markets & Technologies Group at In-Stat/MDR. “The smaller drive segment is also very attractive for manufacturers, as products in this segment are expected to outship products in the 1.8-inch segment in 2006. Some of the key features of this iriver product include its ability to utilize a variety of music services, its stylish design and color display.”
