Default Cowon V5 on sale in UK

No, I'm not getting one, but I might have a play around with it.

Here is a review. Usual Cowon with very good sound, video, and battery life. But much more expensive than a Zune and no WiFi, web, or apps like an iPod Touch. V5 will be 16gb for $299 and 32gb for $359. They say it won't sell well until it the price drops.

I really like the look of this... 4.8", 800x480 screen, 32GB + 32GB SD card.

If I was going to get one it would be for the 64GB capacity, but too expensive, really, and I don't watch that much video.

Clearly there will be a market for it, though, following on from the A3 and O2.

What I'd really like is for my Sony X to have a slot for a 32GB card.. That and a few BBE enhancements..

The icons alone are enough to keep me away

Yeah, looks too small and cluttered. And even though it's user-customizable, it's fugly.

Looks more like they put a listing up before they had any in stock.

This is nothing more than a bigger and thinner O2. 50% of my O2 usage is from the Comic Viewer, so i hate to ditch cowon for Viliv hd5, but the V5 just doesnt look worth it

The proprietary port isnt helping their cause, either. Why companies with a 2% market share would pull that crap is beyond me.
