Cowon's next MP3 player has been previewed, and the keyring-style iAudio E2 is already causing no small amount of confusion. While it ostensibly resembles a screenless PMP in the manner of the iPod shuffle, the row of icons at the top of the Cowon teaser (which you can see full-sized after the cut) does seem to suggest a more complete range of features.
In fact the icons - which include a camera, USB thumb-drive, radio, door and coffee mug - are pretty confusing. The most obvious explanation is that they suggest the iAudio E2 works as a USB memory stick as well as a media player, ideal for storing files and other information.
That's all speculation, though, and we may have to wait and see exactly what Cowon have up their sleeves whenever they finally announce the curious DAP. Click on the image below for the full-sized version of the teaser.
