I am also glad that no Andriod is used, no useless feature set taking up space and slowing down the player.
On the Cowon page is says Embedded Linux, strange way to phrase it.
Oh poor you, what would you do without a dap. Oh crap, I forgot all your legendary daps for a second
I am looking at the subject from other way. I prefer very high capacity players that don't need any connection. I load my songs into it and I listen to it. No internet connection or something.
I am looking forward to see who will bring mSATAs in daps
It runs Embedded linux. Witch means its stripped down to only include the essentials. And made to be good at the one thing its designed to do. In this case, play music.
PS Android is pretty far from linux these days.
Technically Android is a form of linux. While most custom OSs tend to be based off of 'embedded linux' code (or something in the form I've heard.)
but I suppose this is a good thing since they can't seem to wrap their heads around getting android to work properly.
I wanna see Cowon do good, and technically it appears they are more than set to take on their target in a meaningful way, however yet again I will be cheering from the sidelines as this only vaguely resonates with my being
And I do hear android now only someone would tack on a real DAC and worthwhile ampstage to it I'd be set. bleh............. Uh ,,er. I mean YAY COWON!!!!!!
Yes Yes and Yes. Either it's a phone or it plays music very well. Are you listening Sony.
you could do much worse than a J3
how good is the SQ when you have all that ambient airplane noise?
The battery life is a major disappointment... I don't see the point of going to a dedicated linux OS if it's to get such abysmal battery optimisation to be honest...If the goal was to a top audio player, then battery life should have been a key focus - especially at that price!!!!
