Cowon A3: the A2 gets a face-lift

Cowon revamps the A2 into the A3. We hit the CES floor to get the details.

We always welcome a revamped product, and the A3 is just that. Cowon took the already highly rated A2 and gave it just a bit of a face-lift. The A3 is swathed from head to toe in shiny black, with just a bit of silver on the controls. Also, unlike the A2, it comes ready to support DRM-protected content from services such as Rhapsody and Yahoo Music (subscription included). The A2 review has plenty of relevant details for you to absorb, but here are some key specs:

  • 4-inch new TFT LCD
  • High-quality TV Out: Component S-Video
  • Supports H.264, WMV7/8/9, DivX 3.11/4/5/6, XviD, MPEG-4/-2/-1, D1: NTSC 720x480 / PAL 720x576, 30fps
  • Document viewer: MS Office Hangul PDF, and etc.
  • Audio: MP3, OGG, WMA, AC3, WAV, FLAC, APE, AAC
  • Acts as a USB host
