And now for my proving flame post:
No one knows Cowon eh?
Cowon has a Player our right now that is rated Editors choice in anythingbutipod.com The Cowow D2:
It has the ability to increase the space on your player using a SDHC cards so you have no space restriction.
Here's one person who love the Cowon Support:
Cowon is a reliable brand and is rated four stars on Amazon. Here the Cowon D2 16Gb is selling for $190. Add another 16Gb card from newegg and you have a 32Gb player for $230.
It has many players that are remarkable that can't compare to a iPod.
The Cowon A3 series has 30Gb, 60Gb, and 80Gb models out that offer remarkable performance. Their prices are even more to look at:
Cowon A3 30Gb: $280 from a reliable vendor that is part of Cowon(Jetaudio)
Cowon A3 60Gb is $300 from the same reliable vendor and the 80Gb version is only $20 more.
Has anyone here had to deal with apple support? Many people here can say apple support is pretty unbalanced in quality.
All I want is a PMP that plays music, Plays videos, and has plenty of space. Sure the iPod Touch has "apps" and all, but do you really need them? Wifi, you don't NEED. Games? Get a PSP/DS.
That Cowon will do nothing against the touch huh? The reason I hate apple PMPs(Yes, all iPod except the shuffle, are Personal Media Players. So many people don't know there's even a market out there for them.) is because they spend there money on a iPod, not knowing that there are alternatives out there.
What your saying is that Creative, Cowon, Archos, iRiver, Samsung, Sandisk Sansa's, Insignia, and Toshiba all have no chance against Apples iPods.
Just look at all those brands/players.
You can't say there impacting the iPod market. A lot of people out there are looking for iPod alternatives.
