Cowon S9 Curve Goes Blond For SummerS

The Cowon S9 Curve built an imposing wave of hype on the strength of its looks, which made its underwhelming performance especially disappointing. This softly beautiful white version, though, makes me feel like it's 2008 all over again.

For now, the device is only listed on Cowon's Korean site, and there's no official word regarding when, or if, it'll be released in the US, although I'd point to English language marketing materials and, more convincingly, FCC badging as clues that it eventually will. [Pocketables via Engadget]
