Cowon iAudio D2TV and L2 with TPEG

cowon d2tv Cowon iAudio D2TV and L2 with TPEG

Both Japan and Korea will receive an additional broadcasting service to one Cowon media player each this month. An alternate version of the iAudio D2 will be offered alongside the standard model in Japan. It will be almost identical to the original D2 and provide all the same features as well as a 1seg TV tuner which streams content with its built-in retractable antenna. Suitably called the D2TV it is in essence Japan’s equivalent to the D2 DMB.

The second player to gain some extra functionality is the iAudio L2. In the form of a firmware upgrade, rather than a hardware adaptation, it will accept TPEG transmissions which contain real-time traffic and weather reports. The service will be broadcasted over DMB and certainly compliment the device’s GPS navigation system.

Cowon iAudio L2, Successor of the N2

You may ask how Cowon has possibly fit more features into their N2 PMP navigation system. Here’s how: the L2 has been improved by doubling the internal memory to 2GB and replacing the 500MHz processor with two 266MHz processors that will be supported by 64MB of SDRAM instead of 128MB DDR2 SDRAM.

The L2 manages to retain the N2’s 7” WQVGA LCD (480 x 234) screen, GPS SiRF III chip, DMB tuner (service unavailable for most countries), Windows CE 5.0 operating system, two 2W speakers, line-out, and FM transmitter. However, it will only have one SD card slot instead of two, loses support for OGG and WMV, and the screen will be about 7% less bright.
