I don't think there's a flash player out that beats this! WOW! Screen size is really appealing and so is that battery life

I must sell my U3 first though...

Laugh Awesome

Thisis awesome. My coworker has a sister in Korea and she has agreed to buy this for me and ship it. I am sending her the money tomorrow....I am so excited. This will be a replacment for my dieing (dead) x5. Not sure what I should do with it now. Do I need 30gb of storage when I only hve 15gb of music and 5 gb og photos? which I never carry arround with me? 4gb of music and movies is sweet 8gb would be better but....hey...it goes ont he wish list.

I like the fact that it supports album art and TV- out. It must be the smallest player to support TV-Out. Looks like this thing is no real PMP though. No Divx or Xvid support tells us that Cowon is going head to head with its rivals - irver and the u1o/clix and Digital Cube - istation mini.

this thing is amazing. it beats everything else on the market in so many ways!! yes, price will be a little higher than other 2gb players, but looking at the features it's SO easy to justify! >50 hour battery life! What else can do that?! also great that Cowon ditched the DMB function for overseas sales - one thing I wish I could disable on my A2. Looking forward to having these in January!!

Hello
I am not a video codec specialist, but one question here:
is it going to support divx and xvid off the net? or does it need bloody file conversion? if it does need conversion, this is a no for me, I'll stick to my A2 + Mobiblu Cube package
What about .srt subtitle files?
Thanks
Stephane

Am I missing something?

Bar the battery life which is good all I see is yet another low storage MP3 Player, with some odd pen to use it. Granted given a decent storage (8GB +) it would be nice.

Oh and if it supported DVB-T that would be ultra sweet. Pity a digital tuner isn't being released for non-Korean models (DMB isn't much use in Europe).
