Ok so I have the Samsung P3 for more than a year and here are my comments:
-Great quality sound when using EQ
-Tiny screen for touch ending up 3 over 4 times with unwanted selection
-Great BT to cell phone connection
-Screen is NOT usable outdoor at all in sunny days
-Fonts could be larger
-No gapless (important with my car's usb audio)
-Haptic feedback gives a bad feeling on this device
-Very slow menu (though I am a Nexus One user

)
 
So mainly I want a better UI as much in design than in speed, better quality sound, more accurate touch selection...
The Cowon J3 looks like the device that I should take but is Cowon going to release another device soon?
Is the J3 going to make me happy?

maybe yes.

EQ is different on the J3 and maybe you'll like it. maybe not.

 

-Tiny screen for touch ending up 3 over 4 times with unwanted selection

 

You'll be happy here

 

-Great BT to cell phone connection

 

J3 does have BT but I don't know if it can connect to your phone(an android to be exact)

 

-Screen is NOT usable outdoor at all in sunny days

 

J3 is worse, if not the same

 

-Fonts could be larger

 

you can adjust the font size on J3

 

-No gapless (important with my car's usb audio)

 

J3 has gapless with MP3, but I don't know about the others.

 

-Haptic feedback gives a bad feeling on this device

 

No haptic

 

-Very slow menu (though I am a Nexus One user 

 

not slow if you use people's UCI's

Thanks for the replies!
Unfortunetly I don't think I will get the chance to buy one, first nobody want to buy my P3, B&H doesn't send to Hotel (my sister is in NYC), B&H anyway didn't mention that we have to add 10% tax and 22$ for fast delivery...
I could buy it online to my country Lebanon but for exemple B&H counts 56$ UPS alone + 20% local tax...it ends at the price of a PS3!
Now if somebody knows an Asian online shop which will not take a so abusive delivery I will reconsider buying it again.
The DHL delivery of the RE2 from China to Lebanon costed only 18$
