Angry No 24h time format option in the P3 ???

Ok, maybe Im too stupid, but I cant find an option for this. Point is Im living in europe (not uk) and I CAN read a clock with more than 12 h - fact is the 12 h format is really confusing when youre not used to it.

So is it true that I cant change the time format to 24h, I mean my 90' casio digital clock was able to do that?

(I have bought the french version and have now the EU on it with 2.14 FW)

Had mine for 3 months and don't think I've looked at the clock.

yeah, I don't think that there was any option for that on the P2 either...
maybe you could make a flash app that had a 24h clock

you could always just use the clock face widget instead of the numerical one.

And if you don't know whether it's 8am or 8pm then you really have problems.

People seem to be focusing on these little pointless things and calling them problems. If it isnt the 24hr clock its the sketch book or lack of...lol. It has 2 clocks, is it really the end of the world if you dont get to read it in 24hr format.

I can understand questions about audio/video, Bluetooth, battery life and the FM radio. And I can appreciate questions about the form factor, firmwares and UCIs.
But I don't get how it can be a dealbreaker to have a 24hr clock or not, or some crappy sketchbook app or not.

Anyone wanting a 24hr clock should have gotten the Cowon S9 instead.

Yeh, I heard that the ipod has a 24 hour clock as well. I know the p3 sounds great and all and has some of the best bluetooth integration of any player alongside a really nice form factor and a really crisp screen, but without an additional 12 hours for me to tell the time with, well, I think I might change my mind

Just checked the clock widget- it shows me the time in Seoul with an animation of passing clouds. Quite poetic- am suitably chilled.

I'm upset that I can't have a 36 hour clock! I want fewer days in the year. Using 36 hours I'm hoping Christmas comes sooner.

Well, TBH, I prefer a 72hr clock myself. And since no Samsung dap has it, I suggest we do a worldwide boycott!!!! I'll start a petition right away!!!!!
