Cowon taking on the iPod shuffle with the E2?

iaudio e2 Cowon taking on the iPod shuffle with the E2?

The only thing known about the Cowon E2 is the picture you see above. Judging from it, the E2 will be small and most likely not have a screen. If the weird hiroglyphics on top has something to do with anything it might mean it uses various blinking lights to tell you what it wants, kinda like the Samsung S2 and R2D2.

If I’m to venture a guess, I’d say this will be a stick player that will be something in between a third generation iPod shuffle and the old Cowon T2. It’s hard to judge the size of the thing from the picture, but it looks an awfully lot like a pendant, which is possible if it’s the size of the iPod shuffle. No matter what, it’s nice to see Cowon updating their somewhat forgotten stick player players, as epic players such as the Sansa Clip killer Cowon U2 has long been forgotten by the MP3 player community. I’ll keep an extra good eye on this one for when Cowon releases some actual specs.

But there is also, circle + square = snowman, pipe, mug, and glasses, soo……

there is also a pic for what looks like a radio…but just as an assumption wuldn’t the snowman maybe indicate its color, and as for the other pics maybe to show how it can be used to accessorize something you already have?

Everything in that picture are things that can be drawn with circles and squares/rectangles, the E2 included. Not a list of features from what I can tell.

I think the Camera stands for pictures. But, there’s no screen!Whatever it is, looks cool!

I really hope that when you flip this thing over there is a screen and buttons on the other side; because a button-less,screen-less mp3 player is unacceptable in the year 2009.

WindSpear on August 2, 2009 12:28 PM

thats not true, because its still an mp3 player and usually the screenless ones are budget players (unlike the new shuffle). it lets people who are new to mp3 players to step into them a little easier, and screenless players are hella more straightforward control wise…but the s2 does add a bit of a twist with the playlist…

i don’t really get the point of screenless players.if i wanted a cheap, easy to use player i’d buy a sansa fuze or clip. and they’re small too!are screenless players tryin to immitate the old walkmans?!

i think there is a possibility of another kind of E2 that has a square on top of it, mixing it with the one pictured that has a circle somehow does stuff
