Cowon D3 confirmed to get Android 2.1, AMOLED
Korea's Cowon has officially announced the long-awaited D3 multimedia player, confirming an earlier rumor that the device will sport an Android OS rather than Cowon's own. The replacement for the D2 will be Cowon's first device to run on Android and will use 2.1. It will also depend on a 3.7-inch, 800x480 AMOLED capacitive touchscreen instead of the old resistive display.
The media player should be available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models, each with a microSD memory card slot to expand capacity further. The typical generous file support Cowon is known is expected to carry over as well. Pricing or ship dates for the D3 have not yet been announced, though the device is expected to be initially available only in Korea and reach other countries later. [via AMP3]
