The Cowon S9 digital media player wasn’t one of the gadgets I got for Christmas, but since it arrived this week and I did open the box right after I put down the XPERIA X1, I think it’s appropriate to share my unboxing experience today. Anything that prolongs the festitivities is worth doing to me.
I still haven’t had the chance to actually turn on the device yet (yes, it’s been sitting here untouched and sans firmware upgrades for four days!), but I did let it get between the Samsung P2 and first-gen iPod touch during its photo shoot. Check it out below.
I bought the 16GB model in titanium/black, which doesn’t look as nice as the chrome/black device in all the press shots but was the only choice available when I placed my order last week.
Here it is with the Samsung P2 and first-gen touch:

The 16GB Cowon S9 is available now for $240 from Amazon.
