The new iRiver N11 MP3 player is slated for release October 15th in Japan. No word on if it will appear State side.

Expect 3 different sizes: 256mb, 512mb, and you guessed it, a 1gb. It also comes in three different colors and sports a display. The device is decently small at 22 grams. The iRiver N11 is apparently virtually unchanged from its predecessor, and includes similar features such a radio, radio recording, a timer, and a mic for recording verbal notes or ambient sounds. It connects via USB and has a reported 13 hour playback battery life.

If anything, the N11 ain’t bad looking, but its safe to say it won’t appear here with Apple’s release of not only the Nano but the Shuffle.
