I don't have an exact link....the case came with my player. The manufacturer is Zenus, though.

First Day Impressions:

This thing is awesome and am glad i went for the larger screen of the 5.0.

Am experiencing the battery issues pertaining to the charging - gets stuck at about 75%. However, i just unplug it for a minute or 2 and plug back in and it'll show 90% with an hour later showing 100% charged . I spent 6 hours on it last evening using 50% of the battery. Considering the amount of time i was on the android market searching/downloading/installing and playing with various apps, abit of browsing the web, watching a few youtube videos with the last 30 minutes listening to the native radio application all the while having the wifi/gps on and a live wallpaper to boot, thought that was pretty good

Comparing this player to my first android device i bought 5 months ago (budget smartphone - samsung galaxy 550), everything is so much more responsive and speedier like surfing the web, downloading, etc. I was "amazed" to say the least. And the 5.0 can drive (volume, sound) my new headphones way better than the 550. I'm very happy with this purchase!

Now i have to decide how long to wait before "rooting it"

May want to check the Accessories thread as there are links there. The one B&H Photo is taking preorders for appears to be the same as the Zenus, and there is a photo there. Also the exportprive link does show better photos of the Zenus case, which is out of stock at the moment. I purchased mine (White) in early January, but is showing "Contact us" now.

Well I've played with mine enough already on the stock rom. Now its time for me to try flashing a custom rom to mine,its already rooted so thats not a problem. I've been watching development of ROMs on the XDA forums alot and I'm ready to try and see what the developers offer for this device.I myself want to become a developer as well,another reason I watch that forum alot,anyways wish me luck


EDIT: I've managed to successfully flash my device with Meticulus's Foreigner ROM R4

The new boot screen looks cool,it shows a glowing green android rising from the ground,then the updated Touchwiz 4.5 launcher looks SO much cooler than the stock 3.0 version,I like the design of it and it seems to speed up the device,its even more snappy than before while using Touchwiz.

It is an addictive little machine. How much is too much?
I wouldn't exactly say I'm 'falling in love' with it, but it has sort of become my brain. Reminders, grocery list, timer... It's pretty darn useful.

If anyone starts stroking their device and calling it 'precious', we know there's problem.

I'm planning on buying a few more 32GB MicroSD cards in the future. At least 2 or 3 or 4 of them lol I don't mind carrying them around since they weigh nothing anyways lol

I stole the 32GB from my Clip Zip for now, and I have a replacement for the Zip in the mail already.

It came from Amazon.com, but it's currently out of stock:
ZENUS Galaxy Player GB70 Leather Case 'Prestige' Carbon Diary Series - Black

Do a search on eBay,...you might find it there.

All of those useless apps that used to run in the background are gone now after I flashed this new custom ROM. This is the one that I'm using:

This question was also answered in the accessories thread, with links. Out of stock everywhere, but B&H Photo is taking preorders for the black one, link is in accessories, maybe pg 6-8? B&H one appears to be the Zenus.
