After seeing the sexy press shot of iriver's new flash-based Aplayer (which also crams in voice recording and an FM tuner), we totally couldn't resist making the iriver guys pull it out of the case to stack up to a 2nd-gen nano we had on hand. Results? Judge for yourself.

They were really scant on details, but we did squeeze out a date of first quarter this year, so we should it within the next couple of months.
