Despite of the release of smartphone with full video playback functionality, a PMP is not yet a thing that should be entered to the museum or discontinued. Cowon has just released their new PMP called C2 with full touchscreen display like a tablet. Even if it’s not capable of making call, Cowon C2 is still a product that worth your second look when you are in the market for a portable media player.
Specification wise, Cowon C2 is featuring 2.6-inch screen supporting up to 320 x 240 pixels, has built-in battery that could handle up to 10 hours of video playback, had video output A/V (no HDMI port, sadly) and it will be available in several capacity model including 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. If the internal storage is insufficient for you, you can stuff in a microSD card to the provided slot and add about 16GB storage at max.
Cowon haven’t released the detail for this C2 PMP yet. However, it should be a product that will compete in price with the super duper smartphones like HTC, Motorola DROID, Samsung Galaxy S, etc. Also, you might not be able to get one of this if you are not in Korea.
