Shiny at IFA 2008: Cowon launch new touchscreen PMPs

Cowon aren’t necessarily a company you go to first for media players, but they’ve got some lovely looking players prepared to tempt you over. Both the L3 (right) and the S9 Curve (left) are touchscreens, and the S9 features an AMOLED screen. This means an ultra thin, ultra bright screen, but with minimal power consumption, which could explain the 40 hours music playback.

The other device, the S9, has a 3.3-inch LCD screen and an acccelerometer, for automatic adjustment to landscape for video. Both units will feature a TV tuner, and support Apple lossless and True Audio codecs.

Most importantly though, they’re per-ty.
