Default Estimate availability M1 for Germany

1st post ever in this forum, but I've read a lot of u guys opinions written here.

GOOD NEWS: Herein, I'd like to give an estimate of M1s availability in Germany.

I pre-ordered this baby via Amazon, and received an e-mail stating shipping-date the 6th of November!

So, now I'm sitting here biting fingernails in anticipation of this babies arrival.

pls be patience, Samsung already update M1`s firmware for the 4th time, but the UI response still not improve too much, i think until your recieve day, the best firmware will show up and fix the UI response

I called both Samsung germany and Uk and they have no official date yet
In Uk they said M1 realy was supose to come out in end of september (so is probaly delayed to improve the firmware?)

Isn't the only downside of M1 that is slower than P3
and that is upgradable

So then is M1 realy better than P3

since i have P2 is M1 faster atleast than P2 anyone can confirm?

from the vids i've seen on the M1, it looks noticeably faster than the P3.

You are right @h1a8 gapless playback is one essential every player should have! Listen Samsung!!! Should not be a big problem to implement, but when u guys struggle with ui-issues.
@coolvibes the estimate I gave, was derived from amazons estimate shippingdate. Maybe, they know more than we do and more than Samsung does like to admit?
Anyway, I made a good deal with it, because Amazon sold the 32gb version with a very good price.
Does anyone of you guys know if they are allowed to change prices when they made a mistake? I already bought it via their internetside, but they changed to a 120€ higer price afterwards.

They will cancel your order. I had it happen to me. If you read their fine print, they always have the right to cancel an order.

Maybe they don't notice due to automatic orderhandling or so. Don't disillusion me There has to be some honest (or at least a customerfriendly) company in the internet. Irony doesn't work propper in written words. Anyway let's see what they do.

Actually, I think they both are upgrades. The R1 has a nicer and smoother interface than the P3 from what I have seen.

I received my new m1 on the 4th of Nov So, germany is shipping!
@nextgin I didn't pay the full price. Somehow Amazon didn't notice so I got lucky and payed 120€ less than normal!
Does anyone know how Samsung updatepolicy is? In my oppinion the ui-response is a bit slow and imprecise. Should not be with such a powerfull chip inside!
