Do you have some corresponding information or is this mere speculation? I don't know the source, and Babelfish won't even translate the site. There may indeed some Photshop work be in play, but couldn't it nevertheless be a (half-)official, authentic picture?

You can't deny that the "Karma 2" picture is derived from the first one in my post.

Also i's been discussed over at Riovolution:

http://forums-riovolution.com/index.php?showtopic=6705

Until there is an actual photo of the device, not something someone knocked up in Photoshop, then it shouldn't be believed.

I think IGN are going to get to see the Karma 2 in a couple of weeks. Whether they are allowed to take pictures is another matter.

Karma 2 is very small. If it keeps the form factor it had at the show it will be the most compact on the market. It will also have a color LCD and an SD expansion slot. You don't need an expansion slot for content, but it will allow swapping files on the drive. You can assume it will have a USB 2.0 interface, at least a 20GB drive, and the excellent Rio menu system, which rivals the iPod's for ease of use and clean design.

It's photoshopped.

Yeah, I could do it too... but just because we could do it it's proven to be fake? I've not read one single evidence why it is undoubtedly faked, just the stereotype «it's photoshopped».

BigD LOL!!!! Laughed my ass off at that one!

look y'all it's a photoshop jobby, no doubt. M.Wiley @ Gear.IGN.com allready described the Karma (he's one of the few in the world outside of Rio that's actually seen it).. and it's got a _color_ screen, and an SD slot.

It could be a soft donkey shaped case for the Karma 2.

Judging from this fake picture, if Rio will make the Karma 2 a strech and thin version of the current Karma it will look awesome!
It looks better then the current chubby cubic design.

I would also like the Karma 2 to look like that. But more important than the look to me is the possibility to upload the stored music files back to the computer -- hence to use it as a backup device at the same time. Unfortunately that's not possible with the current model, is it? Or is there a trick?

Another vote for that feature!
