Semi-subliminal attempt to subvert the Poll results.. with the "correct" answer??

Whichever one you select becomes italic. "Yes, Looks fantastic!" is showing as italic for me...

Add a camera and wifi and it would totally kick the upcoming touch's apple.

I'm not buying this (or any other) player unless it supports gapless playback...

I've just jumped from an old Sony Clie NX73 (Palm OS 5) to P2 :-).
Clie has an old web browser but in emergency situation it was usable with a mobile phone via BT. I think I will upgrade immediately to any new Px if it has some web browsing capabilities. I don't want a smartphone, iPhone too expensive, Apple Touch has no BT, so I have to wait...

Yes, they dropped the status indicator, but didn't remove the space, and instead added a border, makes it seem like a copycat.
100% agree the improvement of p3 is just too smale
is all about the widgets and haptic
not enough to make you rush to upgrade from p2 to p3

the border isnt that to protect the screen somehow make it more solid
it does seem p3 atleast is more solid than fragile p2

Yep, the border should help to protect the screen.. and I don't find it a problem esthetically... with a crystal case on my P2, you end up with a raised border anyway...

Another benefit of the border is that it would most likly make the edges of the touch screen easier to press. If the border was the metal casing, there most likly would then be a slightly annoying ledge, sorta like on my N810. Have to use my fingernail or a stylus to just use the scrollbars on the edges of the screen.

Yes, no news on gapless. Flash screens would be more efficient if the player could handle the new power drain, no upgrade in that department.

I'm going to wait until we get some info on the P4... as of now, I'd see what ABi has to say when the P3 is out.

I will wait for the review, but if the P3 still requires video conversion of every single file, I am going to the Cowon O2.

Yeah me too. I just sent a message to lebellium and he said that all he knows is that it is a very high-end product, and will come out later than the p3.

Samsung better ship the P3 out before the Ipod Touch G3, otherwise they will have no chance!
