Cowon D3 AMOLED PMP now shipping

Having gone up for pre-order only a few days ago, Cowon's D3 media player is already on sale – a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. The Android 2.1 based D3 is built around a 3.7-inch AMOLED WVGA touchscreen, offers WiFi and Bluetooth, and an HDMI output; music lovers, however, will be most interested in Cowon's near-legendary audio processing technology, which helps them offer some of the best sounding music around.

That's down in no small part to the JetEffect 3.0 and BBE+ processing, tuned by Cowon's own CEO Namkyu Park, aka "Golden Ears". There's also an integrated speaker, accelerometer, FM radio (with recording functionality) and a microSD card slot, along with a T-DMB tuner.

Pricing at Advanced MP3 Players is 8GB for £219, 16GB for £239 or 32GB for £279; US shoppers can pick up the 32GB version through Amazon for $369.99. More details on specs here.
