The new players come in a variety of modern colors and support a broad range of online audio and music services.

The H10 family is PlaysForSure compatible, works seamlessly with Windows Media Player 10 and features support for Auto Sync to sync music, photos and playlists between PCs and H10 players. The PlaysForSure logo ensures consumers can easily identify digital media stores and devices that work together.

The H10 also supports innovative online portable subscription services, such as Napster To Go, which provide customers with an additional option to experience new music and expand their music collections for a monthly rate.

“Napster is pleased that iriver recognizes and has answered the consumer’s desire for a choice of different MP3 players by broadening its H10 line-up with devices that offer a range of capacities and features,” said Brad Duea, Napster’s president. “The new 20GB, 6GB and 1GB models help make digital music more accessible by offering compelling options at various price points.”
