Jet VD sounds like a really fast STD.

No reason to get a D3 if you have a J3 and use it mostly for audio. The EQ settings are exactly the same.

Personally, I don't need internet or video on the move - too much access at work and home fries my brain enough as it is - so I won't be making a move to D3 anytime soon.

For those with crApple Touch allergy though, if Cowon can overcome the reported firmware issues (UI lag, regular bricking etc), it could be a highly viable alternative.

I'd get it if the capacity were 64gb internal, as it'd be 96gb with the microSD card slot that way.

As for the comparison between the touch & D3 - feel free, just keep it civil please.

Agreed, looks awesome too bad it's only skin deep so far, let's hope they get the fw in order.

It is bigger than my iPhone4, so why this product? I don't use my iPhone for music, but for everything else. For music I listen to my Fuze+RB because it is small and sounds great. The D3 seems to be missing a clear definition and purpose.

i'd wait till comes up a new D3's enhanced one like the S9 to J3, i think it's a beta version and the next version will be better at least IMO

Well, how about all those other people who don't own iPhones and Fuzes? I think that's a purpose.

i think they will come to grips with the D3 soon. it's because of android.
the last updates seem to indicate they've overcome a great deal of the bugs that made it such a sluggish experience (judging from videos and the review by globiboulga).
and i'm rather confident, after a few more updates it will be usable.

android+Cowon, it has potential.

Well that comparison is a little silly, my computer screen is bigger than my laptop screen i should sell my laptop.

The iPhone isn't a DAP so forget the iPhone, the Fuze is a budget/basic player like the Sony S series or the Cowon i9, the D3 is a premium player like the J3, Archos 43, iPod touch, etc.

The D3 offers everything the iPod touch offers, but more sound enhancements so it is clearly a high end player and has an easily defined section of the market that it appeals to.

Hope that helps.
