This is a huge disappointment for me. Last week there was a post on the main page about how there was more Sony stuff coming, and the new lineup was going to be pretty impressive. Is this really it? If they would just release the A820 series in 32 gb I'd be happy. Do they have anything else up their sleeve or are these boring retreads it?

I also wan't a 32gb model from Sony - A72X/A82X series, OR 1 of the smaller form factor players that include an FM tuner.

again with the no expansion slot?? anything under 16GB should be required! damn it, i was really hoping this unit would take care of my needs.

missed the target with no on-the-go playlists and bookmarks didn't they?

never saw a walkman that didn't have fm before i started really diving into deciding.

i appreciate the input thanks.

Not necessarily, recent sony ericsson phones have started using microSD cards along with M2 cards. Even if they didnt, some expansion is better than no expansion. Sony want money and a microsd slot means they will lose money because peopel can buy a lower capacity and expand. theres a reason why sandisk, the biggest memory card manufacturer in the world, puts microsd slots on eveything they make. if sony made a player with a m2 slot to make money of memory card, heck if they only offered the biggest capacity model with this option to make sure they didnt lose money on previousely mentioned scenario, then it wouldnt be ideal but i would still use it

I agree, nice but not impressive, the good thing is pricing in canda is inline with what I expected it to be.

regardless, I was told to wait, since something else is coming.

don't expect sd-hc, only their laptops support sd cards, and I don't think sony will add such support to mp3 players.

no need for a video convertor, just increase the video codec support :P

16 memory would be good, 32 a bonus but really expensive.

My worry is that sony will launch it at CES, and that is quite a bit of time to wait, and possibly if it is launched at CES, sales might not even start until march knowing sony

I'd settle for M2 expansion as well, but then again i dont use my 8GB as is. what i think we need is a a820 with better screen, colors and such are very bad compared to the s710 which i also have
