Mplayer+: iriver's Mickey Mouse MP3 player gets an upgrade


iriver’s Mplayer, a super-cute portable MP3 player, is on sale for about 2 years now and has proven to be a big hit particularly in East Asia. Now, the player that’s shaped like Mickey Mouse’s head gets a quite important upgrade and is renamed Mplayer+ [JP].

The difference between the “+” and the normal version is that the new model supports WMA DRM, meaning that you can play WMA files you downloaded from the web on the DAP without any problems. Spec-wise, you still get 2GB of internal memory, Windows XP/Vista support and a  USB interface. The player weighs just 18g.


It’s already on sale in Japan where it costs $60 and is available in lavender, black, white and red. People living outside Japan should try and ask the Japan Trend Shop, Gizmine, Geek Stuff 4 U to get one for them.
