More on the Cowon D2 – UI videos

Blimey, two Cowon D2 posts in short-succession.  I just came across these videos of the UI in action thanks to the camera-work of Cowon Systems employee Kevin Kang.  Three clips, a starter introducing you to the menu structure and layout, then a more in-depth look at how it's usable with both stylus and finger, with a final video covering multi-tasking (impressive) and performance of internal flash memory versus SD cards (also impressive).

Video three is after the cut.

Not for the first time I find myself wishing I lived in Korea - because they get some of the coolest gadgets around.  This, my beauties, is Cowon's latest video-capable DAP, the D2.  Only to label it that is to do it a disservice; hidden behind that luscious 16m colour 2.5-inch touchscreen display is a T-DMB digital TV receiver, mp3 player with support for various common formats, and video player capable of handling H.264, MPEG4 and WMV9.  With the earphones acting as aerial (hence no ugly retractable stub hanging out the side) it can manage 30fps video which is pretty damned impressive.

Optional extras include expandable storage via what looks like SD and a docking station, while the pen-stylus seems to double as a handy stand.  Battery life is good for 10 hours of video, 9 hours of digital TV and a whopping 52 hours of music, and it's available in black, white, red, pink, and lime.

Many more photos of the D2 after the cut.
