A close cousin to the new Clix 2, the iRiver B20 was officially launched today. the B20 expands the screen as well as the feature set found in the iRiver Clix 2. The B20 comes with a 2.4" TFT-LCD display that handles 260K colors. What also sets the B20 apart from the Clix is that it also can receive digital broadcast television via the Terrestrial Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (T-DMB) standard, a standard that was adopted in Europe and Asia, but not here in the States, so this player will probably not see US release. Otherwise both units handle the MP3/OGG/WMA formats as well as the MPEG-4/WMV video, plus Flash lite support for simple games. The B20 ships with 2GB ($214) or 4GB ($268) of memory plus an SD slot for expansion. A built-in speaker rounds out the feature set.
