You can pre-order the 8 and 16, but they're still not in stock anywhere and probably won't be in time for Christmas.

The 32 is vaporware.

Hey Ruben- sorry if I missed it somewhere, but are the new Vibez all flash now? The specs on the Trekstor site doesn't say whether they're microdrive, or flash. And no word on the 32gb one yet? Are folks basically giving up on it as vaporware for sure?

If most of us have silently waited for the Westone 3's? Ya think?

At least I can personally attest to them not being vaporware- I have them in my ears right now, at work!

Yeah, all new vibez going forward are flash only. The vendor they had been using for their microdrives closed their doors back in May 2007.

I don't have a good sense of what most folks are believing now. Speaking only for myself, and based mainly on past history and a little bit of conjecture, I expect to see the 8 and 16 GB ones finally arrive in mid-January (TrekStor's press release promised these to be available over two months ago.)

There is no ETA so far on the 32. I'm just hoping my original 12 GB keeps running strong until the 32 becomes a reality.

Ruben-
Thanks for the info! I'll keep a watch out for the 32G one. But if Sony releases a 32G player soon, I'll just have to snap that up- I really like the Sony's sound (I'm rocking the 16G A829 right now, since my 12G Vibez died a while back).

Different type of player, DJGeorgeT. If you're a gotta-watch-my-videos-on-the-move sort of person, this obviously isn't the player to consider. But as far as audio features go, the Vibez is unsurpassed. Its sound quality and GUI are right near the top, too. Many of us (especially the Rio devotees/nostalgists among us) consider that worth the price tag -- considering, of course, the 32GB vaporware ever materializes into something tangible.

I have a sansa fuze and it sounds better than most players I have owned including the Rio Karma, Carbon, Chibi, etc. I will have to hear the Vibez to believe it. My understanding is that the vibez is not a rio karma and does not sound like it.
