If you’ve been waiting with bated breath for the US release of the iriver SPINN digital media player, then let it out now and head over to the official iriver e-store. The 3.3-inch AMOLED screened device is the focal point of a presale happening now, with the 4GB version going for $249.99 and the 8GB selling for $289.99. Though the whereabouts of the previously promised 16GB model are unknown, the other two capacities will begin shipping on October 3rd. That’s less than a week away!


iriver can’t seem to get the SPINN’s vitals straight, listing slightly different variations of the details on the specs and overview pages, but the consensus breaks down like this:

  • Model: U30
  • Capacities: 4GB, 8GB
  • Display: 3.3" 480 x 272 AMOLED
  • Audio: MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC, ASF, APE
  • Video: AVI (MPEG4-SP), WMV, XviD
  • Photo: JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF
  • Other: Flash Lite 2.1, TXT, FM radio/recorder, voice recorder, Bluetooth 2.0
  • Size: 3.9" x 2.0" x 0.4"
  • Battery: Up to 25 hours audio, 5 hours video

You can watch several UI demos at YouTube or see it in your own hands as early as next week (assuming iriver stays true to its ship date, of course).
