The IPod Killer No One Is Talking About

It is called the Cowon iAudio X5, and it kicks the IPod’s ass. As you go through the list of features I’m about to give you, you need to remember one thing: the X5 costs is the same price as an original IPod.

Features: Audio playback- mp3, WAV, OGG Vorbis, WMA, ASF and FLAC; Video playback- XviD and MPEG4; Picture display- JPEG; FM Tuner which can record FM and has a programable record feature. There is also a line in record. The X5 has another unique feature: it can connect directly to another USB device and transfer files without a PC as an intermediary. All of this for $300. There are two versions of the X5, one with a 20G HDD and 30G HDD. The 20G costs $300 and the 30G is slightly more. The battery lasts 14 hrs. with the 20G and 35 with the 30G. The smaller version is said to be very slim, about the size of an orignal IPod and the bigger version, well, a little bigger. If this doesn’t convince you to get one check it out at Cowon’s website or at CNet.
