Electronista: Cowon added a new entry to its touchscreen players with the P5.
Targeted more at video users, the device has a 5-inch, 800×480 touchscreen with a new customizable “shelf” interface with widgets; haptic feedback that simulates physical button presses through vibrations.
A new, faster 700MHz processor gives the device both a quick interface as well as the power to decode full DVD-resolution video that includes both offline formats (AVI, DivX, MPEG-1/4, WMV, XviD) as well as digital over-the-air TV through a built-in DMB tuner.
Extra wireless comes through Bluetooth 2.0 for some earphones and peripherals.
Unlike some Cowon players, Internet access is strictly optional but can be added in through a USB-based Wi-Fi adapter.
