Cowon P5 touchscreen media player

2008-07-24 0 comments
Cowon's not known for dull media players and its latest lust infused launch is no exception. Offering a full five inches of 800x480 touchscreen action the P5 will pack up to 80GB beneath its brushed metal body.

It's based on Windows CE and touts a heavy duty RMI Alchemy AU1250 700Mhz processor but Cowon's been busy with the interface to add support for custom widgets and fingertip trembling haptic feedback.

Playback of just about any video and audio is no problem with support for AVI, ASF, WMV, MPG, OGM, DivX, Xvid, MPEG4, WMV9, MP3, WMA, AC3 and possibly 8-track and Betamax if pushed.

Bluetooth and FM radio are both in there and you can add Wi-Fi for web browsing as long as you don't mind having a dongle sticking out the P5's USB port.
