Cowon Plenue
 
I'm quite excited by the introduction of a new line of players from Cowon, specifically, I'm glad to see that we will see a Cowon Android tablet in the near future. I will now wait for this one to come since Cowon design and general quality easily surpasses most of the other manufacturers. Let's hope we'll get a 7" tablet with Market support.

I am a bit more concerned about the brand name though. "Plenue"? Seriously? It's a mouthful; it's... bad.

It's sad to see that once again a great little company will be hampered by another poor marketing choice (looking it a you Cowon product naming scheme)...

A good Android tablet could have been the most obvious springboard for the brand globally (let's face it Cowon issue has always been with the User Interface and the underlying software choices, be it Windows CE or Flash Lite)...

Damn, so much potential to both do it right or f*** it all up!!! I can't wait!

It's called D3, "Plenue" is something the Koreans made up: http://anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57187 and http://anythingbutipod.com/2010/12/cowon-d3-specs/

They had... err, "nick names" for several of their players so far. Good thing that fad didn't catch on outside of Samsung South Korea.

yeah i know, but there's more to it... go to http://product.cowon.com/

and click on the plenue logo in the upper right corner: it could be the UI used as android overlay or something, a new design concept, whatever.

dfkt 12-30-2010 05:30 PM

Yeah, just some pompous infotainment, more than usual. Seems there's no substance to it.

Well there are rumors that Cowon will be coming out with a tablet of some sort so it could be a reference to their Android skin.

There's a website dedicated to plenue, which is what does bother me somehow.
Edit: as mentioned above

dfkt 12-31-2010 05:27 AM

Ah right, the site might be a teaser for things to come.

If you go on the Global Corporate and read the press release, you will see that they directly mention Tablet PC as part of the Plenue portfolio of devices. So, yes, I will assume that we will see a range of similarly designed devices over the next 24/36 months. I suspect Cowon is waiting for Honeycomb before any tablet is outed...

Anyone knows if Cowon is at the CES?

they will probably be at CES, like the years before. they officially introduced the J3 at CES, btw.

cowon honeycomb tablet
 
If there is going to be a plenue version of android 3 then the version on the d3 will probably get an upgrade sooner rather than later!

globiboulga 01-04-2011 05:53 AM

I doubt that since Honeycomb has very specific hardware requirements. But I am looking formward to Cowon releasing a tablet PC with Android on it.

Plenue I think means "Create Pleasure", which is one way of saying "bring pleasure" to the owner. Yes, it is a word they made up as I can't find any other reference or translation for it. Hopefully it is a class/category name, and will be for all of their android device including the D3 and those to come later. I think of it as short for "Pleasure Venue", and as they improve the D3 a little bit with each firmware update hopefully it will be come a great one.
