Cowon O2 Gets Release Date and Pricing

cowon o2 dnp Cowon O2 Gets Release Date and Pricing

Vostok.no, the main Cowon retailer in Norway, just got listings of the new O2 players. The O2 will come in 8, 16 and 32GB as we already know, and will be released to resellers the last week of October and shipping to customers first week of November.

While Norwegian pricing cannot be compared to US or even EU pricing, the price of the players suggest that the 8GB model will cost about the same as a 30GB A3, the 16GB will be about the same as a 60GB A3 and the 32GB model will be close to the 80GB A3. If this is true for other countries as well we can expect a US pricing of about $330, $370 and $410 respectively. Far from the cheapest player around, but it should still be an interesting one nevertheless.

The most anticipated player, the S9, hasn’t got any specific release date or pricing yet but is expected to be released around the time of the O2 or not far behind. While it’s a less video centric player than the O2 it might be priced even higher considering the specs, but hopefully Cowon won’t commit market suicide by putting a too premium price on the device.

The three players will each be different sizes; 3.3″, 4.3″ and 7″ respectively. All of them have touch screens and very few tactile buttons. Read on for the full details on the three players.
