cowon iaudio x7 Cowon iAudio X7 TBA in September at IFA

You never can tell with these Cowon rumors and release dates, but the guys over at French MP3 player site GenerationMP3 got word straight from Cowon that the X7 will be announced at this years European electronics show, IFA. Cowon fans are crossing their fingers that this will actually be the first glimse we get of this elusive device. It is also reported that this will indeed be a hard drive based player registering in at 60GB and 80GB capacities.

However, I think that many of us are also crossing our fingers hoping that Cowon does not follow the trendy and less practical touch screen / touch pad rout for the X5 successor. Tactile interfaces for the win! The D2 is an awesome device, but its touch screen interface lends to usability issues in many situations. Speaking of which will get a memory boost to 16GB very soon. More to come on both devices…

Enough of the waiting game! I just ordered a Samsung YP-K5, you know, the one with built-in strereo speakers and just upgraded to 4 monster gigs? Unboxing ceremony will be private and NOT videotaped for U-Tube!

X5 was 18bit (260k colors) already. D2, A2 and A3 are 24bit screens, so I wouldn’t worry.
