Cowon iAudio F2 player
Cowon's iAudio F2 is an unusual compact media player shaped like a cellphone. The 2GB device can display text or JPEG photos, run video at 128x160, or play MP3, ASF, FLAC, Ogg, WAV and WMA music files. It can also be used as a pure storage drive with computers running Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux. An FM radio lets you listen live or record a broadcast for future playback, using the F2's alarm clock function to set timing. Sound output is a relatively powerful 60mW, which is further enhanced by a five-band EQ and 3D virtualization. You can find the player for $125-130 at various online retailers including Newegg and B&H.
