iRiver has managed to keep up with the MP3 player competition by releasing 4GB and 8GB versions of its Clix. Both still have the same 2.2-inch AMOLED screen, D-click system, 24 hours of play life, and voice recorder. They still come with an included cable, earphones, and installation CD. New to the Clix are the colors pink and purple, and its addition of a DMB. Prices are $189.99 for the 4 gig and $239.99 for the 8 gig model.

The iriver clix gen 2 is seeing a storage bump over in Korea, as the device is set to sport 8GB of storage starting tomorrow. When the clix gen 2 launched, we told you that you’d have to wait until June to see that 8GB of goodness, but we were hoping that would be here in the states. Still, at least we still have that ultra-chic red band of color to look forward to when it does hit the US soon at $249 USD. In the meantime, check out our clix Rhapsody image gallery.

iriver and Real unleashed the iriver clix Rhapsody into the world yesterday, and we were able to get our hands on one for your vicarious unboxing pleasure. The device is pretty much just a clix2 with updated firmware that allows for integration with the Real Rhapsody music service, providing a great hardware/software solution similar to what one might get with the iPod and iTunes. Check the gallery for all the images, including high resolution goodness.

We know a lot of you are big fans of the iriver clix, which we thought had one of the best UI designs we have seen on a DAP. Well, we just got word from iriver that what was previously known as the clix2, and will now be known as the iriver clix gen 2, is now available for purchase in the USA. This one sports a fantastic 2.2-inch 260,000 color AMOLED screen, adds support for 30fps video in Windows Media 9 and MPEG-4, and still has Flash Lite support. The battery lasts a whopping 24 hours (with the display off) for audio, and 5 hours for video (at 15fps.) You can order one today from the iriver America store, or wait a week or so to pick one up from another retailer. The 2GB version sells for $149, 4GB at $199. If that isn’t enough, wait till June and grab the 8GB model for $249 USD.

CES is a monstrosity, spanning several million square feet of exhibition space and with every breed of gadget you’d ever expect to find. It’s really quite ridiculous. That being the case, we thought we’d survey the guests and ask what they were most excited about, and what they were there to see. The resounding consensus? “New stuff.”
We can tell you right now, we loved the original iriver clix. We loved the size, the UI, everything. We just got a look at the clix2, and can’t wait to get one of these once they are released. In the meantime, check the video for a preview of the device.
Alright guys and girls - this is your last chance to enter our iRiver clix giveaway contest…
So, check it. Gear Live reader and forum contributer Admiral_Kirk made it clear to us that our recent contests have been a bit too hard, not allowing the Average Joe to win because of the expertise required. Fine, we can understand that. So, we decided that to make up for that, we will make it insanely easy to win an iRiver clix from us. I mean, seriously, the person who wins is the person who wants it the most.
We want you, our readers, to help support the site in any way you can think of. No, we are not taking cash donations, we want to see your creativity. How can you support us you ask? Easy:
- Start posting on our forums, and contribute to discussions taking place there. We will be monitoring them - if you become a regular, you are entered to win.
- Add us to your Digg and/or Netscape friends lists - username andru - and vote for the stuff we submit. If you help promote any of our stories, from any of our sites (Gear Live, Playfeed, The Bleeding Edge, TV Envy, Unboxing, End Score, etc.), you are entered to win. There is no limit to the number of entries.
- Link to us on your site, your MySpace page, your blog, in your signature on forums you visit, wherever. Tell the world about us. Oh, and the more creative, the better. If you do something wildly outlandish (like pulling up the site on every PC in Best Buy), send us proof.
- Subscribe to any (or all) of our free magazine subscriptions. Each time you subscribe to something you haven’t subscribed for in the past, you are entered to win.
- Do things we haven’t even thought of.
Now, we want you to tell us what it is you are doing to enter the contest. That is why we have set up this forum thread - when you do something, let us know. Did you Digg a Gear Live story? Let us know. Subscribe to a few magazines? Tell us. Plaster your cat with the Gear Live logo? Post pics. Let’s have some fun with this one guys. The contest will run through the end of August, and in the spirit of the whole word of mouth thing, we want at least ten people in the running. Of course, we expect a lot more than ten to enter, because - quite frankly - this one really is a giveaway. There is no limit to the number of times a person can enter - you are limited by your own time and imagination. Oh, and location, as you must have a US shipping address to be eligible to win.
Any questions? Ask in the forum. Good luck!
