If the brightly-shaded iPod Shuffle and Nano aren't doing it for you, iRiver has debuted a pair of candy-colored media player models to consider.

First up is the T8 Candy Bar (pictured above), which is essentially a USB thumb drive that holds up to 4GB of space and hosts a 1-inch OLED display (128 x 64 resolution). With an assortment of eight hues to choose from, the T8 supports playback of several file types (MP3, WMA, OGG, ASF, APE, FLAC), and best of all, the battery can last up to 17 hours after a full charge.

Next, there's the S100 portable music player. Available in six potential shades and boasting a 2.8-inch display (240 x 320 resolution), this PMP packs quite a bit inside with an audio/video player, FM radio, photo viewer, voice recorder and an optional T-DMB TV tuner. Supported file types include MP3, OGG, APE, FLAC, APE for audio, and AVI, MP4 and WMV (up to 720p) for video. The S100 is available with either 4GB or 8GB of onboard storage space, but you can add more via the microSD card lot.

The T8 costs 69,000 KRW ($58), and the S100 ranges between 129,000 KRW ($108) and 189,000 KRW ($158), depending upon the capacity and configuration. It looks like both are only available in Korea for now, although if you're really interested in the S100, take a look at the slightly different but similar E100 on iRiver's US site.
