Cowon iAudio 7 Comes to US
Cowon's iAudio 7 is already bound for the US, the company revealed today. The player should arrive largely unchanged from its Korean version and will be one of the longest-lasting players in North America through its switch from a micro hard disk to flash, driving most common music formats (including AAC and OGG) for up to 60 hours. Capacities will also top out at 8GB as with the Asian version of the 7.
The first of the new iAudios will arrive in early July with red trim applying to at least the 8GB model. Shipping prices for the players are unavailable so far but will likely reach $199 for a 4GB version and $249 for the 8GB model, much as with competing players from Apple and SanDisk. [via Crave]
