NEWS: Cowon’s D2 MP3 player is a right touch

The iPod Touch was a fantastic advert for touchscreen technology. We couldn’t resist a good grope every time one was in the office.

Let’s hope the new, 16GB version of Cowon’s D2 MP3 player can have a similar effect.

It features a 2.5in QVGQ touchscreen and is compatible with MP3, OGG, WMA, ASF, FLAC and WAV audio files, not to mention MPEG-4 video files.

There’s a built-in FM tuner, TV output and line input for voice recording.

And, with a claimed 52hours battery life it contains almost as much juice as a Del Monte fruit factory.

As well as the 16GB version (£160), the D2 is also available in 4GB (£100) and 8GB capacities, but the integrated SDHC memory card slot means you can potentially expand this to 32GB.
