Cowon has added a new portable media player to its stable. The S9 sports an OLED (organic light-emitting diode) touchscreen and supports Bluetooth v2, so can be used with wireless headphones. 

The 3.3in widescreen Cowon S9 comes in either 8GB or 16GB capacities and can play video and music and display digital photos.

A G-Sensor automatically detects the orientation of the video or image displayed on the screen. The Cowon S9 also has a built-in microphone for voice recording. The S9, which features a sleek black casing and measures 57x106x12mm, supports MP3, WAV, WMV, FLAC, AVI and WMV files and offers 58mW of audio output.

Cowon claims the S9 has a 55 hour audio battery life or 11 hours if playing video.

Available through Advanced MP3 Players, the 8GB S9 is priced at £169 while the 16GB capacity device costs £199.
