Default The 32GB anticipation society

Make yourself known if your one of the UK bunch who is getting the p3 32 gb when it comes out in July.
Unless you're a fool, then you'll have pre ordered it on play for 150, so if nothing else this thread can give the other p3 regulars (eg Dreamnine, Olley, Danjojo) an idea of how many people will be here asking how to set stuff up on the 28th July

Obviously, I'm one of them. Anyone else?

The 32Gb isn't coming out to the UK until July? What does that mean for the US then? Esp since we haven't had it officially released at all here!

I'm sure it used to be the 28th. Does that mean they've moved it forward at some point?

Look on the bright side, if you hadn't bought a p3 you might have got bored and chosen the s9 instead. If this had happened, you wouldn't have told me how cheap it was and I would have probably bought a d2.
So it is through your selflessness that you have allowed me to own a p3

Sort of wish I had waited a little longer as well...
Especially as I ordered mine from Play.com for 150 a few months ago.
Ah well, I can't say I'm unhappy with it though, it's the best player I've ever owned

I anticipate 32gb versions of the P3, the S9, the Sony X1000, the ZuneHD, and every player that comes out this year. I won't buy one, as my media collection tops out at 14gb or so and I can't stand listening to half of it (the wife's half). Seems to me some other brands (Creative Zen, Sansa View, etc.) went 32gb first. Who's anticipating them?

well my dad orderred the 16gig and that day there was no info about the 32gig on play, the next day i went back to check if the 16gig was in stock yet and the 32gig page appeared, saying the 30th, got my dad to cancel the order for the 16 and preorderred the 32 gig instead, granted i didn't ahve much to open on my birthday, but i reckon itt'l be worth it. i'm fairly sure it always said 30th on play though, fingers crossed it comes a few days earlier.

Play.com do have a (very bad) habbit of pulling release dates from where the 'sun don't shine', so don't get your hopes of a 32GB just yet.

Rock Band 2 on the Wii has had a release date for the 'end of the month' for six months now.

Play.com is one of the best sites on the net for bargins, but their release dates are a bit far-fetched.

Yep, I've noticed often things come in earlier / later than expected. play.com keep reducing the P3s price so much I'm shocked anyone is buying anything else. For anyone who has 'damn, I wish I had waited' syndrome, remember play are schedules to send them out in over two months time, so its a fair waiting period. And there's always ebay to sell your smaller capcity one.

I wanted to get a sansa view 32 gb, but read all about the shoty firmware and lack of updates, so figured i should go for something better, and low and behold, i found the p3. Apparently the sansa view 32 gb takes about 5 to 10 minutes to start up. Anyone have a startup and run time for the 32 gb p3?

Both the Zen & View were offering value 32gb options (and the D2 with use of a SD card) but neither the first two were raved about. The P3 is both a genuine 'new generation' touch screen player, and offers high capacities and at a remarkably low price (considering the Sony & Cowon prices!)

I've heard the View hasn't the greatest SQ. I always felt people were a bit harsh on the Zen, but its hardly a breakthrough player. I'd love to see creative back up there again putting out great players, but for now Samsung have snagged my custom.
