What are the differences between the old and new iRiver Clix?

Hello, I am debating whether to buy the second-generation Clix, and I
was wondering if you are going to review this item? If not, do you know of
any differences other than the body of the player, such as interface or
features? Thank you very much for your time, I'd appreciate any intel.

Keep an eye out for the review today.
There are very few differences between the old and new versions, but they include:
*Body style: The new Clix is longer and thinner (but with the same screen size)
*Capacity: The new Clix stores up to 8GB
*Music store optimization: The new Clix will be (with a future firmware
update) optimized for the Rhapsody DNA Platform, which means it will offer
similar features to the Sansa e200R
*Accessories: There is no cradle option for the new Clix at this time, so there's no line-in recording option.
The interface is almost exactly the same, with the exception of the default
wallpaper. It now has a light hibiscus print, which I daresay makes it
slightly more easy on the eyes.
