Default Heaven has come early for me!

FINALLY SOMETHING THAT KILLS THE IPOD TOUCH!

As some of you know, I hate apple MP3 players and I have been researching other PMP companies like Cowon, Archos, Creative, and iriver etc.

But JUST TODAY the Cowon O2 came out silently. Here's something to look at:
iPod Touch:
32GB = $400
16GB = $300
8GB =$230
3.5 Inch Touch Screen
36 Hours Audio
6 Hours video

Cowon O2:
32GB = $300(Add $100 to that and get a 32GB SD card to add to it!)
16GB = $250 (SDHC Card slot included)
8GB = $220 (SDHC Card slot included)
4.3 Inch Touch Screen
18 Hours audio
8 Hours video

They don't have full stock of them yet but here's an Amazon link and a link to the Cowon website where you can order them NOW!

I'm pissed because they don't have a 32GB black model on the Cowon site yet. But either way, this thing is better than the iPod Touch price wise and useage wise. The only features it doesn't have is Games(I'm sure someone is going to make some games for this thing) and Wifi. Other than that, for the same price of a iPod Touch 32GB I could get a Cowon O2 AND a 32GB SDHC card for double the memory of the iPod!

Anyone here like what they see? For me it's Christmas/heaven!

Hmm, that is a very weird looking thing. I'm not sure I like it being landscape rather than portrait

I like the landscape better, but this is coming from someone who has been using a 2GB 2nd Gen iPod nano for the past 2 years.

I even found a first look video on Cnet:

I sadly have to wait till my neighbor gives me money for doing his yard work before I can buy this.

Pfft. Doesnt even compete with the iPod Touch, IMO.

No Internet Browser
No App. store
Not as "Stylish" IMO

It does have a nice range of support for Audio/Video formats, though.

I like it better because it has the cheap storage, and does more then I need it to do as an mp3 player anyways.

I simply dont need internet and games on it when I have all 30gigs of music and 30 more gigs of movies and music videos
