Coby MP-835 touchscreen PMP almost puts those horrible boomboxes out of mind

In what can only be seen as further evidence of Coby employing to totally different design teams for its PMPs and its fiery boombox product lines, the MP-835 doesn't look half bad. The 10mm thick touchscreen player has a 3-inch, 480 x 272 LCD, and while the 2GB or 4GB storage options are pretty weak, you can augment that with microSD. MP3, WMA, OGG, AVI and WMV are supported, but we'd like to see some AAC and some better video codecs -- but hey, it's Coby, let's not get ahead of ourselves. No word on price, but the player does apparently have FCC certification, so we might be seeing it in the States before long.
