iriver B20 makes us fall for the iPod all over again

Iriver's B20 gadget has got to be the most underwhelming portable video player I've seen in a long time. Or maybe it just feels like it after Apple's big week. But really, who really cares about a player with a 2.4-inch screen, 4 GB of capacity (also comes in 2- and 1-GB versions), and an FM tuner? Certainly not us, and it's not just because this thing won't even be available in the U.S. (the DMB digital-TV tuner is a dead giveaway). Try us two years ago with this thing, iriver.

So if you live in the U.K. and you like lame gadgets, this ugly slab is just waiting for you to give it a home. Only £209 ($425) for the 4-GB version. Are they serious?
