When people talk about Korea, most of the time they refer it to the southern part, as that is where all the consumer electronics action is at. As for the north, apart from a formidable army as well as intercontinental ballistic missiles and perhaps, just perhaps, a nuclear bomb or two, all the news from there aren’t too encouraging. Politics aside, we see Cowon introduce their V5S portable media player in South Korea, where it will take over where the V5S left off. Capable of handling full HD video playback on its 4.8” (800×480) screen, it will also feature dictionaries in English, Korea and Chinese languages alongside e-book support to help Korean students in their never ending quest for knowledge. No idea on pricing as at press time though, but we will try to sniff around.
