Cowon officially announces the J3

Cowon officially announces the J3Well would you look at that, Cowon has officially announced the J3. The player has already received a 2010 reddot design award, and deservingly so from the looks of it. The J3 actually has a lot in common with the S9, but one-ups it by adding a microSD expansion slot. It also gets a nice bump in battery life, with an estimated 64 hours of audio playback time.

Cowon J3 Specs

  • Capacity: 4, 8, 16, and 32GB with microSD expansion
  • Display: 3.3' AMOLED touchscreen (480 x 272 resolution)
  • Audio: MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC, APE, and WAV
  • Video: AVI, Divx, Xvid, and WMV (supports resolutions up to 480 x 272 at 30fps)
  • Bluetooth/FM Tuner/recorder/DMB (for Korea)
  • Voice and Line-in recorder
  • Extras: Flash games, calculator, TXT
  • Battery life: 64 hours for Audio, 11 hours for video
  • Dimensions: 56.0 x 106.6 x 9.9mm (weight: 76g)


The J3 is one sexy looking device. It'd be even sexier with some WiFi love, but I won't complain. Pricing ranges from 189,000 to 329,000 Korean Won, or roughly $167 to $291US (add another 30,000 KRW/$26 for DMB models).

Chuwi Add Another S to P7eos -> P7eosS

p7eoss


I don’t know what more to be astonished by, how Chuwi goes about naming their players or the fact that this 5.0″ player costs less than USD$60 and comes with 8GB of memory. The P7eosS is very similar, in fact totally the same albeit the screen size, to the P7eos. This variant will have a 5.0″ screen, run on a telechips processor which will be able to decode videos that are upto and possible even above 1080p, it does also have HDMI out. Players like this are pretty much kings of video playback, as they can support just about any popular used video format (AVI, Divx, RMVB, MKV, TS, WMV9, H.264, H.263). The player looks to be out very soon, but i am sure it won’t be long before Chuwi goes and add another S for the 7.0″ version of this player.


Maddness.

Looks like Ainol has released a small set of photos of their new upcoming V9000HDA model.  This new player does run on a Sochip processor, but it would be the first Sochip based player to be touch screen based.



I can’t really say that Ainol has done anything new with the body design, but i have to admit that it does have a nice simplistic look to it. Ainol have also released a promo page showing off the UI of the V9000HDA, lets hope the renderings look as good in real life.
