>> Hi, I'm Jasmine France, Associate Editor with CNET.com and I'm here today with the Cohen [assumed spelling] D2. This is a very unusual MP3 player because it is a touch screen MP3 player and it's one of the first we've seen that actually has a touch interface and it works really well. It's really responsive. It has a nice, large screen and even includes this handy little stylus here. You can also use your finger. But you know, I'm not sure how I feel about not having really any buttons to control it. It makes blind control almost impossible and of course you're gonna get a lot of fingerprints and marks on the screen. There's also concern that you might damage the screen, although this has a pretty good coating on it. Probably like most smart phones and pda's would have. So this is a fairly compact player. It is a little heavy. Heavier than it looks. It does have a few tactile controls. You have a hold switch at the top, very important for a touch screen. You also have your main volume controls on the top and a hot key that will take you back to the menu. This player also features a built in SD card slot. So if you're not content with 4 gigabytes of memory which is the highest this goes, you can add up to 2 gigabytes more or however big the largest SD card goes. And then over here you have the standard headphone jack as well as some USB ports hidden underneath the flap here and a reset button which this of course fits perfectly into the reset button. So it's multipurpose. I like the design of this player. It also sounds really great. You can actually get [inaudible] in V plus for twice the capacity at those same prices. So you are paying a premium. You get a lot of features. There's of course video playback which looks great on here and you get photo playback as well. There is even a text viewer. There's also a built in mic for voice recording and an FM tuner that works very well. I'm Jasmine France and this has been the Cohen D2. ^M00:01:46 [ Music ]
