Cowon J3 AMOLED PMP spotted; launches this month

Having been spotted in little more than sketch form back in January, we now have some firmer information on Cowon's upcoming J3 media player.  Set to launch this month, apparently, the Cowon J3 has a 3.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen running at 480 x 272, complete with up to 16GB of storage and Bluetooth connectivity.

Three versions of the J3 will be available initially, with the PMP coming in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB SKUs.  All will have an accelerometer for automatic screen-orientation flips, a TV output for displaying content on a bigger screen, and Cowon's own JetEffects effects 3.0 technology for improving audio performance.

Previous rumors suggested that the J3 would also get integrated WiFi, though there's no mention of that which we can find.  However, given the company's well-respected audio quality, this could be a popular PMP among audiophiles assuming Cowon price it reasonably.
