There exists no information about the D3.

We only know that it might run Android. http://www.journaldugeek.com/2010/04...-sous-android/

Or, this might be a mix up with the info we have about the upcoming X7... X7 info is rather realistic, D3 is pure speculation at the moment.

Default Futur replacement of J3 with Android?

Are there any rumours that Cowon is preparing a replacement for J3 with Android OS?
It will be a sort of ipod touch with wifi and internet browser + tons of apps and games
Though knowing Cowon it will be very expensive

Yes, there are rumors. Maybe they might turn reality sooner than you think.

is Cowon really that expensive though?

i mean, they sure don't have real budget players like the sansa clip(+) or fuze, but they have to pay the license for one of the most awesomest equalizers BBE(+), the s9 and J3 have an amoled display along with a high capacity battery multi-codec support etc., dedicated tactile buttons, an accelerometer, bluetooth...


i think this all justifies the rather high price or am i wrong about that?


Cowon+Android might be a win but there's also a great chance that it just fails, like the first generations of archos android devices (though they seem to have gotten their act together and released a competitive device, for once).

there's certainly room for decent ipod/zune hd clones the question is whether the great unwashed will care about a device from a company they barely heard of if at all.

"cowon, cowon? is that the north korean currency?"

oooooh yeah, like the villiv p3. i seriously considered buying this one, alas they haven't and maybe will never release it outside of korea and the lack of reviews did the rest.

It will be a winner if the screen resolution is good enough 480x800 on 3.3 or 3.5'' and rootable
XDA dudes will have great pleasure to give custom roms then

If more Android DAP flourish, we can expect more devices supported by an Android-Rockbox firmware. That's the only good point I see.

But when everybody has an Android smart phone, what will be the use of an Android DAP? The only thing left for DAPs is to become 7-12 inches tablets because the pocketable market will be all for phones. Studies already question whether gaming devices like the PSP and DS are possibly doomed because of phone gaming. My idea is that the big 3-4 inches screen DAPs are too.
Only tiny players like the Clip+ provide a practical added value while having less features.

What would make the old dedicated players stand out could be remaining electronic devices that prevent you from being located and spied. But how to sell a not-connected device now? Your next DAP will scrobble that you listen to that music in that train station or in front of that street address right now, and added applications will reveal all about you to marketers while you post so important things on twitter or facebook... So social, so cool !
