So now will you spring for a 32GB microsdhc for it, or just a 16?

Heck, I'm already satisfied with 8GB!

Will be getting my Cowon J3 next year after I get into National Service and finally draw a pay.

I'm ok with one of my players being only 8GB, but I would not be content with having only an 8GB player. 32GB would be just about right for me, though.

All in the form factor of the Sony A/E
With battery life from Cowon
And Rockboxable

The J3 form factor is way better than the A845, in my opinion. The J3's side buttons are much easier to reach (and distinguish) on the go than the A845's Mickey Mouse controls. Also, the J3's screen pwns the A845's screen really badly. Of course the J3 is made of plastic, while the A845 is made of metal, so that point goes to Sony.

Good info - actually, my comment was too vague.

I do like the Sony A/E form factor but really from a slimness/width/height perspective. And yeah, I ain't no great fan of the Japanese Mickey Mouse fetish myself. So odd they basically worship a rodent!

J3 controls/screen I am sure kick Sony's ass. :-D

Sony, are you listening>?

I want 64Gbs now(internal). Is it just price that prevents most manufacturers from providing such a version? If Microsoft can then.....

Lack of sufficient demand also.

If this were true why provide 32Gbs with add on memory functionality?
