Default Cowon 3D - Cursed successor to the Q2 and V5?

Engadget - Cowon 3D

Don't know what to say or think about this yet. I'm surprised there are no posts on it yet, so I decided to share this find.

Screen size and resolution looks great..... but they can keep their 3D visualizer, as far as I am concerned.

3D doesn't work for me as I don't see stereoscopically along with a fair percentage of the population.

anyway, Cowon can keep this player, why not a higher resolution than 800 x 480 which is standard for a 3.5" phone these days?

Pass, seems like a gimmick which I can't see it lasting too long if it ends up having the issues from some of their other PMP's.

It's just a V5W, with a stupid gimmick tacked on.

Didn't see this thread earlier, already posted to the front page: http://anythingbutipod.com/2010/11/c...ons-on-screen/

no cool, that pos- and i'm sure it will be, who in the name of chaos wants a 3D pmp, i mean wtf?, is doa. it might get some enthusiasts in korea and japan (and possibly asia), cause they're kinda geeky in concerning gadgets in general.

also, couldn't they have waited a few more days, after all dfkt's review was only one day on top of the frontpage.

I guess i can't say I'm surprised or disappointed as i didn't expect much from their next few large screen PMPs. I guess they have a certain prospected sales number to meet, and there are enough stupid people to buy this thing to meet that quota.

If they had released the X7 w/this screen res, minus the stupid 3D BS, it would have been a sale. This, blech, I'll pass.

Engadget seems pretty excited about all of this. Granted, they're excited about anything that mimics that 3D they so love and worship. I think 3D is just a government conspiracy to sell more Advil..

Actually they maybe excited by the sole promise of wi-fi...because I mean a PMP is a fail without it right? Thanks engadget.
