Hopefully it'd be released before I enter the army, so I can get a new player.

They would be crazy not to release and have it in the stores in the next couple of months, if at all possible, to capture the December holidays market.

I can't believe this thread is stuck on page 4 instead of racing past 400. The fact that no details like features or price are known hasn't stopped anybody from posting their opinion and defending it to the death.

Here is what the new X7 could look like:



As you already know it should be a HDD PMP available in 80 and 120GB capacities

If it really is going to be that, I lost all hope for Cowon. Didn't they learn anything from the awful O2 and the abysmal V5 that tactile buttons are essential? Why the hell do the J3 and S9 have six tactile buttons each, and their shabby video players have two?

How do you know, that there are no other buttons on the side?

If it's got the same number of buttons as the J3 I'll get it, but not without play/pause, ff/rew, and volume controls. Please, have them on the side like my J3!!!

Now it's official: http://product.cowon.com/product/COW...uct_page_1.php
Need a news on the frontpage

4,3" 480*272... That sucks.... Why not 4,3" 160*128?

What was merely an indistinct outline in August is today a bona fide retail product. Cowon has made its X7 PMP official over in South Korea, letting us take a gander at the spec sheet if not necessarily buy one just yet. A 4.3-inch touchscreen takes center stage, backed by up to 160GB of hard drive storage and a battery rated to last for 103 hours of music or 10 hours of video playback. An FM radio tuner, built-in speaker, and Bluetooth chip fill out the "retro modern" body, while the software front reveals DivX-encoded video compatibility and a smattering of your usual note-taking and utility apps. The standard 160GB model is going on sale for 339,000 KRW ($304), or if you're a globetrotter and need a set of preinstalled dictionaries, it'll set you back 379,000 KRW ($340). There's no word on US availability just yet, but this thing didn't go through the chore of getting certified with the FCC for nothing.
From every angle I can see, both on that page, and the Cowon page lebellium linked, I only see a couple things that might be buttons....this really looks like an almost total touch screen device. That surely will not be a popular design choice, at least among the Cowon fans here.

Has just a bit too much bezel IMO. It only has 4 buttons, from what I could see.

disappointed. Low res screem with no hardware buttons. Too much bezel. Also, is that yet another UI they are using?

For a screen that size the resolution is pretty low.

I'm taking it that "registive" is the same thing as "resistive" which is the same thing as "unresponsive scratch magnet". Great.

I was starting to like the look of this but am now feeling pretty disapointed.

First impressions according to my desires:

Good:
Capacity: 120/160Gb - woo!
BBE+ / Jet Effect etc
Battery: 103 hrs

Bad:
Physical size: 79x127mm. Why so large? For video I suppose, though personally I couldn't care less.
ID3 tags: where's 3.2? Being stuck on 3.1 means max 30 characters for artist/title/album!
MSC mode: don't see it anywhere?

So not good overall.

Ack!

My confusion - which stems from my software engineer's habit of mixing up "3.2" and "3v2" - to me they look the same.

Not in this case

103 hours audio playback?! Bloody hell!!

Rest is disappointing though. I still want one, however.
