Here's the actual article, via DAPReview.net:

Cowon W2, Atom-based MID leaked
Friday, October 30 (2009) 03:07PM | Posted by Michael

It looks like Cowon is the latest company to stake a claim in the mobile computing industry. A certification page from Bluetooth.org leaked out recently revealing the Cowon W2. The Design name entry tells us exactly what kind of product it is, a MID, Mobile Internet Device. The only other pertinent info listed is that it'll be powered by an Intel Atom processor.



I never really put much thought into it, but the PMP market has slowly transformed into a convergence market. Archos is the best example of this, transitioning from big and beefy PMP's to a more refined "Internet Media Tablet." The saying "Jack of all trades, master of none" comes to mind when I think about these all-in-one devices. Hopefully the W2 won't sacrifice any of the great audio/video capabilities that Cowon is known for.

I hope cowon stays away from anything MS.

Don't want another repeat of the q5, and def don't want something that tries to compete with the viliv s5.

I want something more like the itouch, archos android. Good OS, Good browser, and being able to add app because it's using an os like android.

Or rather the OMAP platform instead of the DaVinci.. that would be nice. Either way, Texas Instruments beats Telechips/Wolfson any time. Atom is something else, but I'm not sure I want an UMPC from Cowon...

It could be mid, like a more powerful archos 5, hopefully with a 5 inch oled screen.
