Default Does anyone know if the NWZ-S639 will be coming to the U.S?

I see it's available on some of the U.K. sites. Also, If I do buy it from the U.K., will any Sony mp3 AC adapter charger work on it? Has anyone bought one of these fantastic players?

Thanks,
Vision1994

The S639/16gb model seems to be taking a bit longer than anticipated to arrive here in the US, so I've ordered 1 from Advanced MP3 Players in the UK, and the price wasn't bad either!!! Here's a link:

They seen to have a very good rep, and they'll price match Amazon.co.uk's prices:

I have nothing but good things to say about Advanced MP3 Players. As I happened to be in Edinburgh yesterday, I went to their kiosk at the Ocean Terminal shopping centre.

They were very helpful and let me give a demonstration model a thorough listen-through and when I decided to buy the S639, they even threw a screen protector in, free of charge. I would definately recommend dealing with them if you're interested in an S639.

At 99, considering the current exchange rate, it's just under $150, which is a great price, considering that they don't even sell the S639 in the US. Shipping isn't too bad either, they ship internationally at a flat rate of 14.99, which is about $22.60.

Lemme know when it arrives. I'm curious as to how long the shipping will actually take.

I'll let you know, tho I'm really getting impatient. Now I gotta' start selling some of these dang things I'm not using, too many laying around (I only use the A829 & Zune 120, & I have some I never bothered listing in my sig).

Am i correct in thinking that the S639 only comes with a USB charging cable and no mains adapter? If that's the case is a mains adapter considered a good optional purchase (and decrease charging time) and which one would be suitable?

No, it doesn't come w/a charger, that's a separate purchase. I have the Sony branded charger, but almost any usb charger rated @5.5v, 800mah will do.

It is here now. I picked-up one a the Devil (Best Buy) today for $139.99 on sale. I'd lost my NWZ-A816 last week and was gripping because I like to sound better than my Clip....which I love as well but the Sony to me is slightly better.
