iriver clix 2 preview, with new capabilities of flash lite.

Great! Iriver clix 2 is going to be called as iriver 2nd generation (2g) with new improvements and new capabilities of flash lite is expected to be release in 12th feb 2007 in Korea.
A great device with cool features which iriver clix and U10 really missed it.
Main Features are:
1) Flash lite wallpaper.
2) Flash lite Themes (no need to hack them as in U10 some developers did.) So a complete new GUI based on flash lite. Its really great and impressive that iriver opens possibilities to create beautiful GUI.
3) Slimmer then iriver clix and U10.
4) Incredibly beautiful AMOLED display (Active Matrix Organically Light Emitting Diode) Very crisp and bright colours.

No technical specifications released yet seems, haven’t found it so if anyone have kindly update it here. But must be with Flash lite 2.0 atleast.

Seems User demand of Rich personalization graphics like using wallpaper, new themes (GUI) etc. increasing day by day and it provides excellent opportunities for designers πŸ™‚

I really love this device very much, can’t wait to see in my hand, and love to see my flash lite content playing in this πŸ™‚ .

  1. Where are your sources that it has Flash Lite themes and wallpaper support?

    Yes, iRiver was claiming Flash Lite 2.1 support on the device from CES. However, that could potentially mean only limited to the UI.

    The e10 allows for Flash Lite 2 based themes, so with the Clix 2, it could potentially be so as well …

    As for wallpapers, do you have confirmation somewhere that Flash Lite can be utilized there?

  2. Clix 2 looks like a great product from what I’ve read. I had hoped, however, that the screen would be a little bigger than the clix 1. especially since clix 2 is wider than the original clix. I was surprised that video is actually easy to watch and enjoyable on the clix 1 despite the size of the screen, but who doesn’t want a bigger screen?

  3. My brother is in Japan at the moment, he comes back mid March. Does anyone know whether these are going to be released in Japan anytime soon, or any other regions for that matter. I would really like to get my hands on one of these!! The Clix 2 is a lovely little peice of kit.. I really want one πŸ™‚

  4. According to the Korean iRiver site, the Clix 2 was meant to be released on February the 28th, or atleast available on the net. But they had to delay this because of some technical issues. It is now predicted to be released between March 5th – 7th. The 2Gb at 15900 Won (AU$214) and the 4Gb at 19900 Won (AU$268). The new Clix 2 has focused on 4 concepts, Fast, Easy, Vivid and Slim.

    Vivid. If anyone is looking to buy the Clix 1 instead of waiting for the Clix 2 to be available in your area, I’d think it better to wait. From the Korean reviews I’ve read, the Display is a whole lot brighter and with the new AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen, it can be viewed from from pretty much any angle and uses less power. The screen size is still 2.2 inches, which could be disappointing to some…

    Fast. The Clix 2 also has 30fps, which I think is double of Clix 1 (FPS is Frames Per Second, meaning relatively smoother video playback).

    Easy. The Clix 2 has other fancy additions, such as the User Interface has different themes (some of which the back, and this can all be done quite easily from the videos I have seen.

    Slim. The design of the new Clix 2, I think, is an effort to out-do the iPod Nano (which I think the Clix 1 already should’ve, but there are still those who like to conform with a stupid iPod :P). Thickness wise, it is just over a centimeter (12.8mm) but as the player is actually curved, its outer edges are a mere 8.2mm! (The Clix 1 was originally 16.4mm). And although it is slightly wider, the design makes me drool, and it would be a perfect pocket fit!

    I didn’t think I’d end up writing this much but there’s probably a lot I still haven’t written about it. So after all this, I’d say, get it. And if you have an iPod Nano already, have a nig cry. iRiver has done a great job in maintaining the D-Click and Flash UI, and will definitely stand out in the market. 10/10!
