iRiver S7 Possibly Spotted But Could Just Be Altoids Tins

Fans have been awaiting iRiver S7 news ever since a leaked spec sheet documented the digital audio player's possible existence a few weeks back. Now a series of pictures are making their way around the giant interconnected tubes, but color us skeptical. The specs themselves seem more than believable (1GB of flash storage, plays MP3, Ogg, WMA, etc.) and it comes with an FM tuner. These are all pretty typical of iRiver DAPs, but the circulating pics look a little more than suspicious. Beside the fact that they look like Altoids tins, the designs are a little wacky: JAZZ; shoes; abstract art?

Until Reigncom confirms the existence of the S7, we'll just have to hold our breath and speculate wildly. Nothing wrong with that, but sometimes—just sometimes—we like some hard facts to go along with leaked pics. Until then, let the rumors spread. Besides, it's not like this alleged iRiver does anything any other knockoff DAP can't do.
