PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I have often wondered why there wasn't a flood of Android portable media players - now the WSJ Reports: "With the move, Samsung will round out a series of Galaxy-named gadgets that matches product for product with Apple Inc.'s line of iPods, iPad and iPhone. Samsung will have the Galaxy Player, Galaxy Tab and Galaxy smartphone. All use a variation of Google Inc.'s Android operating system and work with apps developed for it."

I'm waiting for the Cowon X7 to come to New Zealand which apparently will be some time next year. If all is working out right it appears to be a good replacement for the iPod I have - lets hope that by that time things are working smoothly on the firmware front.

Yes, if you're not willing to buy abroad, Cowon devices are hard to find. In France, there is exactly one Cowon reseller who accepts cash, Pixmania, and he's not exactly well-known to the public.

NZ is in a good situation that we allow parallel importing (with much protesting by the United States) so there is an online store that the distributor sells Cowon through. I'd purchase Cowon from an overseas company but then there is the issue of warranty and the fact that most refuse to export products overseas (remailers are expensive to use). Amazon being the chief of all assholes who refuse to sell stuff overseas hence my refusal to purchase anything off them.
