New Cowon D2 - quite feature packedcomment: 46 | Saturday, October 28 (2006) 08:20AM | Posted by Lone
Those of us who were just a bit disappointed in Cowon's recent D1 announcement may be more pleased with what else the Korean company has cooked up. Their player is called the D2, and it's design is a bit different than most of Cowon's products.
Let's just start things off with a (new) picture:
...and how about some specifications?
Cowon's claim to fame in the DAP world is feature-packed devices, and the D2 appears to be no exception, with DMB, FM radio, video playback, TV outpout, touchscreen, an expansion slot, and insane audio battery life. For reference, the D2's screen size and resolution are the same as the Meizu M6, though it's 16 million colors are far more than the Meizu's 260,000. The source shows a 2 GB version; hopefully higher capacity models are on the way.
Update: the above-mentioned release date of November is valid for South Korea. Should be available abroad before Christmas, if all goes well - a 4GB edition is "possible" but has yet to be confirmed. Cowon will strip off the DMB stuff for the US/EU versions as well, as was to be expected. Specs listed above are the official ones. Seems that there is a black and a white version of the D2 out there.
Couple of additional pictures after the jump (just click the link below). By the way, you might remember our previous item on the iAudio D1 (iAudio 6 + DAB and flash memory) - this has been confirmed to hold 4GB worth of memory (still flash, we hope) rather than the formerly-mentioned 1 & 2GB values. MSRP has dropped dramatically as well, to 159UKP (down from 179UKP in initial reports).
Thanks, Kevin & Josh
