iRiver’s latest MP3 player, the E50, is looking pretty slim and trim.  Nothing is completely official, but you should expect a brushed aluminum casing, 2GB, 4GB or 8GB of storage, a 1.8-inch LCD, FM tuner, microphone, EQ, and compatibility with a variety of codecs including MP3, FLAC, WAV, WMA and more.  The E50 also doubles as a photo viewer and supposedly gets 52 hours of audio playback on a single chair. Expect it sometime in January 2009.

Price? The 4GB is said to go for about $90.
