Photos: Cowon iAudio 7

Cowon's new iAudio 7 improves upon the iAudio 6 by using flash memory instead of a microdrive and by increasing battery life to a whopping 60 hours.

The main menu screen of the iAudio 7 preview unit looks nearly identical to the menu of the iAudio 6. From left to right, you can choose from music, video, radio, recording, photos, text viewer, and settings.

Like its iAudio 6 predecessor, the iAudio 7 works over MSC or MTP connection modes, allowing compatibility for both a Mac and a PC.

Here's the iAudio 6 (bottom) and the new iAudio 7 side by side. Beyond some color changes, they're nearly identical in size and shape.

To our surprise, we loaded an MP3 with embedded album artwork and it showed up as a background image during playback.

From the back, you can see that the iAudio 7 (right) uses a glossy plastic backing. You can't make it out in this photo, but the text on the back of the iAudio 7 gives off a prismatic rainbow reflection. Neat.

The iAudio 7 (top) and iAudio 6, stacked up. Absolutely identical, aside from color.
