Boundaries are diminishing from all respect of creation, is it because of lack of innovation or hipper imagination, it’s impossible to say. Now, look at this phone, sorry DAP, that incorporates even the minutest appearances from the cell phone world. This sham is Cowon’s iAudio F2 with a 128×160 pixel 1.3-inch screen, an FM radio, voice recording, MP3, WMA, WAV, OGG Vorbis and FLAC. However, to catch video you need to re-encode their clips. 22 hours battery back up is quite upright and 2 GB memory is respectable. Infact, it can be considered a fine try out. Available from 22 September for 179,000 won or $187.
Cowon is all set to release a duo of PMPs named Cowon P5 and A3. The P5 has a 5″ touchscreen display and is the high-end version of Cowon A3. The P5 features a DMB antenna and runs on Windows CE5.
