Gear: Cowon Z2 Plenue, Cowon S9
I have used the iPod Nano 6G a lot, but it is a bit limited compared to some of the other media players that are available. Previously I owned a Cowon S9, which delivered rich audio quality and had a beautiful screen, and this made me think of what Cowon may have to offer these days. I checked Cowon's website and found the Z2 Plenue.
The Z2 Plenue is an Android powered media player. The Android version is 2.3.5, and it has been modified to get some unique looks. I'll go into more of the software details in time, but for now let's check out the box contents.
- Cowon Z2 Plenue unit
- White and black versions avilable.
- 8GB, 16GB ($280), 32GB ($320) versions.
- USB cable
- Full USB to micro USB.

I'm not sure if this is "beautiful minimalistic" or Cowon just charges a lot for very few accessories. ;)
We'll go over the hardware features on the next post. For further enjoyment you can view the images below. Enjoy!
