Cowon Q5 PMP Packed with Connectivity

cowon Q5 Cowon Q5 PMP Packed with Connectivity

The most descriptive word we can use to describe the Cowon Q5 portable media player is “wow.” Just plain wow.

Immediate stand-out features of the 5.5″ x 3.5″ x 0.8″ device are the 5″ touchscreen (800 x 480), Windows CE 5.0 Pro operating system, DVR capabilities, and Bluetooth, WiFi, and HSDPA connectivity. By comparison, the 40GB/60GB storage capacity, optional GPS, integrated speakers, FM radio, line-in recording, and extensive codec support (including Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, DivX, and XviD) almost seem rather boring. Almost.

Slated for U.S. availability by June 2007, the Cowon Q5 is priced at $500 and $550 for the 40GB and 60GB models, respectively. Archos who?

wow, that thing is incredable…almost makes me want to break my creative zen. However when looking at it i cant help but feel it is a stripped down UMPC, woldnt it be more logical to drop down the extra $150 and get a Asus R2H (i think thats the name of it), with that you get all the things that that cowon can do, with the addition of the ability to play old games (probably starcraft, ohh man starcraft on the bus would be incredable)
