Default Cowon G7 HD



http://product.cowon.com/product/COW...uct_page_1.php

A "full HD PMP" with a.... 7" Clear LCD 800x480 screen (that's 133 DPI...).
Powered by... Win CE 6.0.

Is there any rational reason for which Cowon has not gone bankrupt yet?! Are they 100% state-subsidized or what? Seriously. I'm fed up with them...

Shame on me. I got excited the moment I saw this post, but I forgot to remember this is Cowon.

Good question. I have pondered this a time or two myself.

Like I said on our sister site iaudiophile.net: Still behind other current devices,...nothing from Cowon impresses me anymore.

I still feel that way,...

If you guys think that device is poor only due to its bad screen resolution and Win CE 6, you should check a more detailed specs list: http://iaudiophile.net/forums/showthread.php?t=41521

That's way beyond pathetic.

I saw Kizune,...Cowon is pathetic nowadays. They're trying to sell us garbage at premium prices.

I know there's a whole lot of things to hate about this thing, but isn't it the first 64gb flash device with an expansion slot? (something I was looking for a couple of years ago granted).

Cowon has released a few 64gb flash-based players. They usually are only available in Korea, and maybe imported to other parts of the world. So NO, this isn't the first w/an expansion slot.

800x480 is OK on my Samsung Galaxy 5.0, but no way is it acceptable on a 7" screen.
