Cowon D3 Plenue Android PMP review (video)

Cowon D3 Plenue Review

Excellent S-AMOLED screen (Pentile RGBG matrix might take some time getting used to, though) ; Excellent audio quality ; Supports almost all video codecs/containers, up to 1080p ; Supports all the most relevant audio formats ; System-wide BBE sound...

This unit will play almost any video or audio file format

Unlike most of its competitors, this device doesn't have a built-in camera

Sound and picture quality are superb, but this unit lacks some features, including great customer service.

This is not the Android iPod touch rival you're looking for

Cowon D3 review

 

We want to love the Cowon D3, genuinely we do. Cowon cranks out PMPs with amazing sound and solid video support. But its first bash at an Android powered model has some serious flaws. Read on and find out what in our full Cowon D3 review.
