The COWON Q5 is finally arriving stateside and has been priced. Its even being called the Super PMP.
You get your choice of 40 or 60 gigabyte capacities both with a 5-inch WVGA screen, 64MB of flash memory, 128MB of DDR2 SDRAM, 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, and Windows CE 5.0. There is also a voice recorder, photo/text viewer, and support for a ton of different audio, video, and picture formats.
It will be launching next week in the US, like a godsend. But I must admit, for the $549.99 (40GB) and $599.99 (60GB) I’d either go with an iPod Touch or for an even closer comparison, an Archos device. Those prices are just plain crazy unless all that storage space is pure flash.
