I sure would want a 64GB player or more, but I don't care for an expansion slot or features like Wifi. So yeah, I want one too. Should be easier to pair with a portable amp than the S9's curved back.

I like it! Is this from an official source?

EDIT: Hoping it comes in a black version too.

I am still pretty sure there will be something to differentiate this from the S9, but am finding the curved back of the S9 limiting so would consider selling the S9 and getting this just for the flat back and thinner form.

4, 8, and 16 GB variants only... That's a bit of a head scratcher to be honest.

I hope it has a play/pause button as well as a volume rocker as I do not see one in the picture.

Looks nice, but enough to warrant an upgrade from my trust s9.

Cowon is one of those strange companies that no-one really knows about, but actually, their PMPs are usually pretty decent, with great audio quality. The J3 surfaced a few months back, but more details have popped up in France.
GMP3 claims the J3 has a 3.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen with 480 x 272 pixels, an accelerometer, Bluetooth, and will be in either 4GB, 8GB or 16GB options. Cowon's JetEffects 3.0 technology supposedly improves the audio, but apart from that that's all the French are giving up on the PMP for now
why they called Cowon is a strange company??

Because they only ever heard of Apple. And they expect their readers to be as ignorant as they are themselves.

Just saw that on Gizmodo myself.

Hopefully they improved the speed of the interface compared to the S9 and add an SD slot. Besides that, if it has all the same features as S9, then I'll be completely sold.

I'm hopefully going to start guarding soon, so I should have enough money to pick this up online when it comes out. I can't wait!!

I'm planning to get a new MP3 player soon, at least 64gb. If Cowon brings this out with 64gb of memory, I'm sold.

And here my S9 was just delivered today, heh.

The only thing I'd want on the S9 would be a microSD slot, but I don't imagine manufacturers are keen on giving us one when relying on price premiums of higher-capacity models.

Are there any confirmed upgrades from the S9 on this? I don't care much about WiFi myself, but it'd be a good feature for Cowon to add.

Shh! He's the only French person on abi (that I know of). Don't piss him off, we gotta keep him around for these kinds of stuff.

today so many players use that anodized aluminum material; Samsung P3, R1(only front), Cowon J3, Zune HD, Iriver K1, amp3 ,etc..

i think Samsung P3 is the pioneer

I've bought a single Samsung mp3 player in my life and if I had to buy a DAP today, that would not be necessarily a Samsung. I like Sony and Cowon as well

@curiouswonderer: I guess we are several French people here but the others are not so active or write a better english than me so as you could think they are not French
