iriver follows in Apple's footsteps
Let’s get back to the world of mobile phones, where, as we all know, iPhone enjoys considerable success. In favor of this are more than 10 million units sold in 2008. Most probably, this is what made the Korean manufacturer try its luck in the same field.
The company’s first phone is named “wave”, and it inevitably calls for comparison with Apple’s product, as it has a big (3”), touchscreen and only one key. The 262k color TFT display has a resolution of 480x272 pixels, and the specs sound promising: handwriting recognition, dictionaries, 3.5mm jack, Wi-Fi support and Bugs Music Service for music download. On top of that, you can see that the music player features an equalizer, which is missing in the iPhone.
Do you like iriver wave? Maybe you want to buy it, when it launches on March 9, 2009, and catch the wave? Well, we truly hope that you are Korean, since otherwise, you won’t be able to do it. Yes, unfortunately in the beginning the phone will be offered only with the Korean operator KT. Let’s hope that it will eventually reach Europe and the USA, so that we can try it too.
