Cowon S9 PMP gets Dec 15th UK release

Last we heard, Cowon's S9 PMP was experiencing "problems in production" and delayed, outside of Korea at least, until early in 2009.  Now, though, UK availability for the AMOLED touchscreen media player has been confirmed [pdf link], with the 8GB and 16GB versions launching on December 15th.  It's with no small amount of fanfare, either; they're suggesting it could be the best sounding MP3 player to date.

A trio of new PMPs from Cowon today, waiting in the wings for their official announcement at IFA 2008.  Each has a touchscreen and Cowon's typically minimal selection of hardware buttons, with the range starting out with the most compact, the S9 Curve.  The first from the company to use an AMOLED display, the screen measures 3.3-inches and has a T-DMB digital TV tuner as well as audio & video playback.

Cowon seem to be carving a good niche for themselves with good-design and, judging by the reviews, superlative audio quality.  As such, it's always nice to see a new model from the company, and the P5 PMP just announced in Korea doesn't disappoint.  Packing a 5-inch, 16.7m color 800 x 480 touchscreen, two versions - the P5 and the P5 Study - will be available; the former has T-DMB radio and Bluetooth.

iPod who? Let's face it, if you're in the market for a portable media player and you're less than swayed by Apple's offerings, there's never been better choice of rivals, each playing catch-up to the market leader by offering - in general, anyway - bags more functionality. Of course, you may just be tired of seeing the same old iPod UI and having Jonathan Ives' handiwork flashed in your face on every street corner; in that case, there's plenty of different, and often just as successful, design out there to choose from. Cowon is a long-term player in the PMP game, and AdvancedMP3Players.co.uk were good enough to send over one of the company's latest devices, the D2; not only does it have up to 8GB of storage for your music, it also receives DAB digital radio and plays video too.

This thing comes in two variations, a white one, and a black one. What’s the difference? About 6GB, the white one comes with 2GB of storage and the black one comes with 8GB of storage.

As such, the black one can store 9 hours of 1Seg mobile TV, or up to 45 hours of audio in various formats. The battery should last about 7.5 hours, I assume that’s for music, so probably half that or less for video.

There are some pretty amazing features that come with this PMP too. Lets start with the screen, its 4-inches diagonal, 16 million colors, and has a res of 800x480, that’s as good as my TV.

Then there is the FM radio with built in recorder, a USB host, MPEG-4 video recorder, and up to 1280x720 HD output. Codec support includes FLAC, DivX, and OGG, and I assume there is a sufficiently longer list of other codecs supported as that list doesn’t have any picture formats and no MP3 support in the list either.
