Several months back iRiver acquired Siren, a DAP maker founded by former Rio and Creative execs who managed to get a player or two onto Walmart shelves. Keeping the Siren brand iRiver just released the new DP250, a popsicle stick portable with a built-in FM tuner and transmitter.
Available with 1GB and 2GB capacities in a choice of a black or white case the unit offers voice-record and an external speaker to go with the tuner. Battery life is 18 hours on the charge. A 1GB unit will hit you for a mere $86, while $120 will put you in a 2GB version.
