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.

Earlier today, iriver and Real unveiled their new partnership strategy, focused on the new iriver clix Rhapsody digital media player. In reality, the clix Rhapsody is just a clix2 that inetgrates seamlessly with Real’s Rhapsody music service. The end result is something that is akin to the iPod + iTunes integration that many enjoy from the Apple side of things. The player will sync up with your Rhapsody library, and will also download personalized Rhapsody Channels which, in theory, should be chock full of tracks you will enjoy. If this sounds familiar, it’s because SanDisk has done something similar with their Sansa player. All in all, the iriver clix Rhapsody runs for $189.99 USD (watch out for the $12.99 monthly all-you-can-eat Rhapsody fee), which includes 4GB of storage, and is available now. Even better still, anyone who has previously purchased a clix2 can just upgrade the firmware on their device, which pretty much turns it into a clix Rhapsody as well.
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.
