Cowon outs 1080p-capable portable media player

Korea's Cowon has released its latest portable media player, the V5W. Video is its focus as it can play back 1080p video onto external displays thanks to an HDMI output. Its own touchscreen is limited to 800x480 but, at 4.8 inches, is large enough for handheld viewing. The Wi-Fi-equipped device runs on Windows CE 6.0 with a proprietary user interface and contains a few document apps, games, dictionaries and more.

Extras bring an e-book reader, web browser, e-mail client and weather. The built-in storage is complemented by an SDHC memory card slot. The V5W can be had in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models with equivalent prices set at $330, $380 and $455, respectively. Korean release dates are unknown, and the device arriving in the North American market is uncertain; some Cowon devices do reach the US. [via Akihabara]
