Default Is it possible to buy the M1 online and have it delivered to the US?

Is it possible to buy the M1 from Korea or something online and have it shipped to the US? Sorry , might seem like a stupid question but I'm kinda desperate. Also, is English available on those versions?

well you can buy the M1 on ebay but that might be kinda expensive.

Yeah, the ones on ebay (32 gb) are 500$+. However, I don't know if they are the ones with the tv antenna, which would be useless in the US. I understand your desperation though. I really want this player.

I think it may be possible to buy direct from korea as well. I'm not sure how that works, but I remember that some of the popular online stores in korea allow international shipping. The downside may be customs fees, shipping time, shipping expense, and I'm not even sure foreigners can buy from korea. My korean friend told me that I needed a korean citizenship number (Passport number? Something like that) to buy certain things in korea. So you may want to look into that. A couple online stores may be gmarket, lotte market, and you can search for stores on naver.com Hope this helps also you might want to have google translator

Thanks for the info. There's no 16GB model out? Wow, forget that then..I'll have to wait for the release in the US PLUS the extra time for the 16Gigger. Oh wow..Lotta waiting..

Wow, I am really not thinking right these days. Excellent suggestion, thanks. How much is an 8Gigger?

I guess it'd depend on how good the memory card integration is, how battery-efficient accessing the memory card is and so on... Despite I don't have any clue about such points, I have the preconceived idea that getting a 16GB model is preferrable than 8GB + expanding it with microSD. Anyway, as you say the price would be also something to take into consideration...

Very true...If the battery life takes a hit because of the microSD, then I'd rather have the 16Gigger itself...Gah, so much confusion...Why can't Samsung just hurry the hell up and bring the M1 to the US and actually advertise it unlike the P3...

Don't get your hopes up about Samsung making much of a presence of the M1 in the states. With our luck we will only get the R1.

That sucks...If we get the R1 here in the states, I know for a fact I won't buy it...I'd stick with my P3. If the M1 comes, sales would go up, at least that's what I think...
