Cowon's iAudio A2--a new kind of portable video player

Cowon's iAudio A2--a new kind of portable video player

A video iPod with a 2-inch screen would be kind of cool, but it would be a small fish next to Cowon's upcoming iAudio A2. The Korean company's first true PVP, the A2's endearing feature is the ability to playback MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, and WMV video files--without the need for transcoding. Basically, what this means is that you simply transfer a file over as is, and it will play back. Or so Cowon claims.

Here are some more specs:

Video: MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, WMV without transcoding
Audio: WMA, AC3 5.1, MP3, OGG, G.726, WAV

Playback time:

Audio: 20 hours

Capacity: 20GB/30GB/60GB

LCD: 4-inch TFT LCD (16:9 Wide Vision)

Output: 20mW + 20mW

Dimensions: 133mm by 78mm by 22mm

TV recording: Yes (720x480, 30fps)

DivX DRM: Yes (WMA 10.0, DivX, and so on)
