Curon QCOX: camera-style media player

updated 09:50 am EDT, Fri August 11, 2006

Curon QCOX Media Player

Portable media players tend to follow a fairly specific formula: a 4-inch or larger screen, a hard drive, and support for multiple audio and video formats. Curon, a Korea-based electronics maker, is following that prescription with a slight twist. The QCOX media player has a 4.3-inch screen and a 30 GB hard drive. Though the company isn't specific on which formats the player will support, the use of Windows CE probably means that MP3, WMA, AVI, and WMV are likely choices. Where the QCOX truly stands out is its interface: it uses a dial similar to that on a camera to let you change between different media modes. As befits a Korean player, there is also T-DMB support for mobile TV broadcasts. This player might not reach our shores in its current form if at all, but even at the Korean price of $520 it could be a more distinct and sleek alternative to Archos.
