Think sony were trying to be too futuristic with the buttons. They look fine for a tv remote or something, but for a DAP?!?Nah, sorry sony...
I guess it's to cater to those who like horizontal units but prefer holding it with their left hand, the HD1,2 and 3 weren't conducive for that. This one the screen rotates 90 degrees to the right or left.

If you didn't see it, here's more pictures here: http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/av/do...408/dev108.htm

The hd5 is lighter, smaller and feels smoother than the hd3. I fingered the hd5 in the sony building yesterday and its ugly buttons were easier to use than the hd3's because its buttons were fit size. The backlight was far lighter than the hd3's. Except for the button's shape the hd5 is satisfactory but I wanted more colors such as blue.

The sony uk says the LCD back-lit is NO but why don't they mention to us the LED back-lit is YES? Wow! The hd5's backlight is far lighter than the hd3's though.

Don't know if anyone has realised, but those buttons are actually metallic.

Now that I think about it, the hd5 looks a lot like the original black GameBoy mini, when Nintendo shrunk the units down. At least the hd5 is backlit, but they're both still monocrhome screens .

hey my friend is going to HK on tuesday 12th april, but he is only gonna be there for a week, do u think the HD5 might be out abit early lol? and HK should get them soon after jap release right?

if not, i'm stuck with getting a HD3 instead...

btw, do u know if the sound quality in HD5 has improved? thats what i really wanna know, and any significant upgrade that makes HD5 better than HD3, other than battery life...

hey i'm roughly in the same situation as well. i know someone who will be going to HK during May, and i'm wondering whether the HD5 will be out there? i sent an email to sony HK and they said they dont have any info as yet. btw would anyone have any idea on the general level of prices there for the more popular DAP? ie. the usual suspects HD3, ipod photo, zen micro, etc. thanks for ur help guys.
