Another thing that bothers me, besides the price, is that the X-series will not support FLAC nor OGG Vorbis format. I really love OGG.

MP3 @V~0 is completely transparent, so it really shouldn't matter. The 1 true gripe is the lack of gapless, now THAT is an issue!!!

Darkside it is not necessarily that I will audio quality with MP3 only, but rather that with the amount being charged for the X-series, you would expect OGG and FLAC. But Sony is big on patented products. However, I am certain the audio quality will be amazing. Still, I am very glad I purchased the P3, as it fulfills all my wants.

Neither the German Sony Website nor SonyStyle.de lists the new X1060 or the X1050, even though you can see a picture of one of the new players on the Sony.de's Walkman page in an ad.
Also Amazon.de and other big consumer electronic online shops don't list the new Walkman Touch. The only two German websites listing it are mp3-player.de and dnet24.de. The x1050 retails for 249,90 (about 347,57$/ 217,12), the x1060 for 329,90 (about 458,83$/ 286,63). Delivery time is between 4 and 7 days.
A sales rep at Saturn - a big electronic discounter chain in Germany - told me they won't get the new Walkman before end of June/ beginning of July. Thus I think Sony won't release the player in Germany before mid June.
Since my old, but brilliant iRivier h320 broke about 2 months ago, I think I will order the player at Amazon.co.uk even though I don't know the stats of the German version which might include additional feature like Slacker due to other copyright laws in Germany.

I live in U.S.
I tried to order the x-1000 and the online stores from U.K. won't ship it to the U.S.
Why? My money is good.
How can people from the U.S. get their hands on one of these? Any U.K. stores that will ship to U.S.?

Both Amazon and Sony Style in the US have this available for pre-order.
