iRiver concept touchscreen phone could, possibly, maybe, perhaps, someday, arrive

The phone first aired at CES this year has just been given the release date of March, for Korea. Elsewhere in the world? Your guess is as good as ours, but no holding your breath please.

We‘re unsure as to why we’re showing you this, it’s not to upset you with the unlikely hood that you may never actually see it or just to make you droll over its stunning design.

iRiver’s portfolio of products to date are a little of the beaten track in terms of how they look, which make them stand out from the crowd of drab, run of the mill devices seen around today.

So when we first saw the ‘Wave’ our interest was initially peaked to go so far as to say ‘OooOoOoo, When’s that going to arrive then?’. Sadly all went quiet on the western front, until recently.

Besides being a touch screen phone, they’ve also appeared to have made it a video player extraordinaire. Or a video player first, seeing as they’re well known for them and a phone second – who knows.

It’s a looker definitely, but that’s all we can say at present seeing as its website is in Korean and we’re a little sketchy on that.

What we can make out from the site is that the iRiver Wave has a 3-inch 480 x 272 touch screen, 4GB of storage, WiFi 802.11b/g, Adobe flash support, a media player backing H.264 and OGG, FM tuner, SRS WOW HD, a micro USB port and a microSD slot.

All we can say at this point is, bring it over here iRiver! Let’s try together and Wave goodbye to the iPhone’s world domination.
