iRiver Cell Phone Available March 9th

Reigncom’s President, Myoung Woo Lee has announced that iriver will be releasing a cell phone early next year. The new iriver phone will be available from Korean carrier KT. The iriver phone concept had been spotted at CES 2008, but iriver brushed off speculation of a release claiming the phone was just a concept.

Full technical specs have yet to be released but the phone features a large touchscreen, Wi-Fi, and embedded access to Bugs Music Service. Handwriting recognition and multiple dictionaries are also included.

The iriver phone and service activation will originally be available at 10 iriver Zone stores, with plans to expand the distribution to major carriers.
