Cowon, a very well known name in the PMP business, has launched it’s latest media player – the Cowon O2.
The Cowon O2 is an all-in-one, no frills media player. It practically plays all the video formats you can imagine upto 1280×720 at 30 fps! And yes, it plays audio too, again in most formats, out of the box.
My biggest gripe with iPod (or iPhone) has been the conversion required before transferring video files. It takes too much time and is a huge put off. If only Apple was less of a snob.
Anyway, here are the specs:
At $299 for the 32 GB model, this sure is a great buy. The iPod Touch gives you WiFi, Safari, Email and the whole AppStore but it has half the disk space, doesn’t allow SD cards, has a smaller 3.5″ screen and above all plays almost no video formats (Okay 1 maybe).
And if you can wait more, Cowon is going to launch the S9 soon. Similar features, Touch enabled smaller 3.3″ AMOLED (whatever that is) display and added Bluetooth and FM Radio. Choose this one for it’s looks!
