It seems like forever that we’ve been hearing about the Cowon S9 Curve, a sexy Protable Media Player (PMP) with a 3.3-inch 16 million color scratch-resistant touchscreen, and the wait is almost over. Cowon has finally made this puppy official, given it a release date and priced it – in Korea. On December 16th, a week from tomorrow, Korean S9 admirers will finally be able to purchase the player. As for pricing, the S9 will come in three flavors:

  • 4 GB – 219,000 won ($150)
  • 8 GB – 259,000 won ($178)
  • 16 GB – 309,000 won ($212)

Not bad at all! We still have no word on a US release though speculation points to availability some time in January. Hit the jump for a few slides from Cowon that cover the “Advanced GUI System” pretty nicely.
