Looks stunning, and it has proper tactile buttons for controls!!! I cannot stand portable players that don't have buttons so you can't control them in your pocket. Just realised though, what with it having full wifi and a touchscreen and everything, it's gonna be pricey. I was hoping that they next Walkman that's 32GB would be around 150 to replace my A818. Judging from the ipod Touch, this'll probably be at least 300 for the 32GB model at launch

ya I am and on head fi ppl are saying that the noise canceling is independent of the headphones. This one really seems to be amazing. I do like their SE phones (though there can be.. many improvements...) and am familiar at how the other sony products were (though I wasn't all that impressed) but this... has similar features (that are useful, and has good SQ as well) and more! (oled, NC)

I am really impressed with what's on paper so far, S9 offered the SQ and the OLED screen but not enough I guess, I'm very set on getting this one. Let's hope it comes out in Spring in canada..32 gig. hellz yes!

New video, in Spanish, of the X-1000. It shows video playing on the spectacular looking 3" screen:

Looks fantastic but just not quite as fantastic as the S9, i need to see how good the Web Browser is before i make a desicion. Hopefully sony will let someone properly review it soon, or at least take sum pictures which arent blurred.

Web browsing isn't as important to me as wifi for the direct download of podcasts, and other apps such as weather, email, web radio, etc. Anyone know what apps it has installed?

He nice, looks like my A818 will get a brother.

I thought about a Cowon D2 or S9, but this is way better!
I hope the price for 32 GB model will be around 250 or less.
Maybe this thing will have a stronger amp than the other Sony players, but i don't really think so.

I don't think that Sony will offer apps or a SDK for develope apps....they never did.

News, weather, email, web radio??? Folks, we are talking Sony here. They tend to SLOWLY update their player w/apps and features. Just the YouTube app is surprising enough. If we got all of that, I'd prob freq out myself.

Now my "Wishful Thinking" mode is in FULL effect!!!

you realize that you get your hopes up for practically every player and end up being let down...methinks you need to ramp up slowly this time. Haha. First it was the Touch, then the S9...you ended up disappointed with both! lol. Pretend this player is gonna suck really bad and maybe it will work out better for you!

One of the things that really bothers me about this player is the built in noise canceling feature- which is fine if you are going to use the stock buds, but for those who use their own headphones its just an unused feature you are paying for.

I agree Enzoten, but one site said the NC would be headphone-independent (which I doubt.. didn't sony release a headphone dependent NC pmp before?) but it would be sweet if it was included, I won't cry over it though since other players don't have it anyways.
