Remember when we teased you all with this sexy new PMP from COWON and how disappointing it was to find out it was hitting Korea with no US release date? Well stop your crying already – COWON has just announced today that it will be releasing this gadget in the US a lot sooner than we all thought. With its very own GUI lovingly shown off by an AMOLED screen, this PMP most definitely a stunner with specs to match. This thing is just jam packed with tons more features than your average PMP:

  • 3.3″ AMOLED touch screen, 16 million colors, 480 x 272 pixels
  • 500MHz dual-core processor
  • DVD-quality MPEG4 and TV output (supports AVI and WMV)
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with stereo headset support
  • G-sensor accelerometer
  • Extended battery (11 hours video and 55 hours audio, not bad!)
  • JetEffect 2.0 audio technology
  • EQ Filter and stereo enhancement including BBE+, Mach3Bass, 3D Surround and MP enhance audio processing

Wondering how much this thing will cost you? For an 8GB model it’s $199.99 and a 16GB will run for $239.99 and it will be available on December 19, not January like we previously thought. We’re not sure if it will be in stores, but we know it will be available through JetMall, Newegg, Amazon, eBay and a few other online retailers. Anyone going to pick one of these up as a stocking stuffer?
