Cowon is a small company, they don't make their own memory like Sandisk does, they don't get mass discounts from part manufacturers like Apple or Creative do - therefore the prices are steep... well, no one's forced to buy a Cowon. However, at least for me it seems you get what you pay for, with their DAPs. (Just look at the price of the Kenwood HDD player, in comparison.)

Those prices will sure go down. For example, the D2 4GB costs $200, so the D2 8GB will be no more than $280-300 at the beginning, I assume.

We Europeans have to deal with these price discrepancies between us and the USA all the time... Americans usually just don't notice it because they get the new products before they're on the European market, in general.
