Default Where to find the Trekstor Vibez 32GB?

I am trying to find where to buy this player, but I cannot seem to find it? Does anyone know where I can find it? I've checked the usual J&R and J&H or something like that, but they only carry the 16GB!

The flash based Vibez aren't released at all, as far as I know. Only the 8 and 12GB micro-HDD ones are available.

So far the 32GB vibez is a myth that only exists in Trekstor's marketing literature.

Jeez, and finally when I settle on a player that seems to fit my needs, it hasn't even been released.... Thanks so much for the replies!

Kudos to Trekstor for quick response, even though the answer isn't what we want....

Subject: Vibez F 32GB

Hello, I am in the market for a portable MP3 player and your Vibez model has made it to the top of my list. I am curious as to when the 32GB model may be released as the current model does not offer enough storage space for my needs. Do you have a planned release date for the 32GB model?

Thank you,
David

On a related note: Amazon.com stopped listing the 16 GB vibez as available for pre-order, leaving just the 8 GB as "usually ships in 1-4 weeks".

Update. Both the 16 GB and 8 GB have disappeared from both Amazon.com and JR.com.

Trekstor really dropped the ball on this. I really wanted to get 1 of these players, and the flash based version that was coming to market (supposedly,...:/) was a major deal to me. Oh well, they're DOA AFAIC.

For anyone who hasn't heard, yet:

Quote:
Dear Ruben,

Thank you for requesting information about the TrekStor vibez Flash. The TrekStor vibez, winner of the Red Dot Design Award, is a product for which we have received great popular acclaim. Therefore we deeply regret that, due to unforeseeable circumstances that are beyond our influence, it is not possible to launch the TrekStor vibez Flash.

A supplier for an important component of the TrekStor vibez was affected by the worldwide financial crisis so badly, that they are no longer capable of maintaining normal business operation and are therefore unable to produce this component. Unfortunately there is no substitute for this complex component on the market. This forces us to cancel the launch of the TrekStor vibez Flash.

We deeply regret that we are forced to disappoint the great interest in the TrekStor vibez.

Thank you,

Support Team

Unhappy

I am willing to sell mine, BUT I will warn you first.

They are poorly made and it could stop playing and crash and burn like the rest of them. It is/was a poorly made product and I had to send mine back under warranty. The screen is loose on the front. That's the way I recieved my replacement from the factory. I owned it for 3 months and it took 4 months to get a replacement.

I'll sell it at the right price (enough to buy a new Cowon D2+), and buyer beware.

So, in too many words, I am saying look at another player out there. The Vibez does sound wonderful, but it was really poorly made.
