Cowon X7 video MP3 player

Looking for all the world like an oversized touchscreen smartphone, the Cowon X7 is a 120GB portable media player with a 4.3in-widescreen 480x272-pixel display that is large enough to read books. It costs £229 inc VAT.

The fully-featured device boasts video playback and can play 10 hours of video before needing a recharge. Cowon claims 103 hours of audio entertainment between charges too. An FM radio, voice recorder, calculator, clock, document viewer and dictionary are other notable features. A voucher for Audible e-books and DRM-free music downloads is also included. As with an Android smartphone, navigation involves jumping back and forth by tapping items and bookmarking favourites.
