Cowon iAudio E3 coming
Korea's Cowon is displaying an upcoming portable music player on its home page, the iAudio E2. While little is known about the device other than its styling and that it's coming soon, it appears targeted at the same audience as the iPod shuffle as it goes without a screen. Cowon also makes the iAudio T2, which has a tiny OLED screen and a 2GB capacity. It connects to PCs via a miniUSB connection and sports a built-in FM tuner with recording for both broadcasts and voice. Some of these specs are expected to be shared by the E2.
Pricing and release information for the iAudio E2 are unknown. Some, though not all, of iRiver's players reach the US but typically face a delay of weeks or months. [via DAPReview]
