How am I supposed to get white, after reading that description?! :D I'm so happy you're pleased with it!
 

I'll probably end up with black, since I'm not sure whether the back of the white one is shiny or matte. If the front bezel on the white was white instead of black (like the white iPhone 4, whereas the J3 looks like the white 3GS), I'd be sold, whether or not the back was matte.

Lol, yes I have seen it, but of course it is very biased because www.advancedmp3players.co.uk sells the J3. I love Andy Gordon's accent when he describes the player: "The Cawon just blows the competition completely out of the water...it makes a mockery of others...it's just class-leading" I love it!

Are there any places at the moment that sells the 32GB J3 in white? Jetmall only has it in black, and I can't find other places that even sell the 32GB version.

Ebay, but I wouldn't buy the J3 32GB from there anyhow because it is $26 more expensive than Jetmall, and you never know if the seller is reliable or not.

does anyone know what is the dac chip used inside cowon J3?

post #171 of 3117

^^ I've dug and dug and nothing, a_tumiwa. ABI's got nothing on the DAC too, but I'm sure you've scrubbed that site. ;)

Since jj94 and iPoodz brought the subject of the Viliv P3 Prime back up; I'd think I should share this piece of information I found last night after a quick Google search: based on this Korean web page, a 32GB P3 Prime with WiFi (and DMB which is useless to users outside Korea) currently sits at ~360 US$; the price for a non-DMB P3 should be lesser.

I'm not sure if I should start a new thread because the P3 hasn't even been confirmed yet.

post #173 of 3117

Everytime you say P3, it makes me think of the Samsung P3.  Wish they would change the name of that PMP >_>

I really hope the Viliv P3 Prime comes to US. It seems like the perfect player (if it ends up having high sound quality). Basically, an Android ipod touch

basically, the Android capabilities of the P3 are extremely limited, including the audio and video capabilities. It's only just for apps. The principal OS running the P3 is Windows CE. The P3 has the crappy SRS enhancers, totally NO MATCH for the Cowon's mighty BBE. I'd choose the P3 over the iPod Touch any day, but i'd totally choose the J3 for my audio.

 

And if you want Android, just better wait for the D3. 

 

 

P.S Why do they all end in the number 3?

Good points, exactly what i would have said . And about the D3, are there any estimations for when it will be released?

^^ Geez, you guys. Get a room... er thread, already.

post #178 of 3117

     Hmm, I don't mean to question your statement, but I'm curious what the limitations are? I'm not too concerned about video, only good sound quality (as in not crappy, but I'm not looking for top of the line bar none #1 quality), a decent variety of apps (Instant messaging, multitask capable), and internet browser/wifi.  

     Though I have not tried them, except for SRS on Windows Media Player, I don't think I would use either SRS or BBE+

     Do you have any information on the possibility of an android D3? If it had a microsd/microsdhc and wifi I would definitely consider it.

Yo, anyone figure out how (or if if's possible) to charge and play the J3 at the same time?

post #180 of 3117

Can't you test it out Mediaogre??  I thought you just got yours like yesterday o.O
