meh with their dap track record it's not that exciting imo.

Edit, I just can't see needing a camera in my dap, not worth it

The daily affirmation UI is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen. They call it “Daily Life UI."

Edit: I probably shouldn't be too quick to judge

The naming makes no sense. This should have been the D3...the D3 should have been called something else, although I don't know what...lol.

Well, I think the product packaging that doubles up as a cardboard drawer for pencils could be the stupidest thing ever

Though, the product itself looks appealing to me. Feature-wise it seems like a J3 competitor in a smaller (and IMO better looking) form factor. There is no AMOLED display and it tops at 16 GB but neither of those are show stoppers for me. This could be my next PMP...

320 x 240 is fine on a phone or DAP with a 2" screen - anything larger and it looks pixellated.

I think I would pass on this.

Looks ok, but I can't really see what it offers over my D2.

Still waiting for a small, high capacity music player .... sigh ...

Absolutely nothing, obviously... But still, I think I will pass this miniature drawer and recycle the packaging material instead

It is true that the daily UI scheme (whatever that actually means) seems a bit factitious but I'm hoping every aspect of the UI is once again replaceable with custom components, just like in Cowon's other recent players (J3 etc.)

Default Cowon C2

Product page on the Korean Cowon site.

A proper D2 successor. Looks sweet.

55 hours of audio, 10 hours of video. Everything else is mostly updates to the D2+.
