one more thing, you can't compare a flash memory player with a hard disk player, 1gig and 30 gigs is a big difference. We all hear of ipod killers and its just the looks that they are trying to compare, maybe add a fm tuner. Two difference technologies, comparing an apple to a watermelon...

Well....it looks more like the Sony's mp3 player...dont think its able to take over iPod in the future! Haha!! Although it has the expansion slot for miniSD, miniSD hasnt gone up to 30gb...so I'd rather get iPod which has much larger capacity...

i dont see how it is any better than ipod other than a built in FM transmitter ... which is just an ipod acessory...

and just because it uses SD cards doesnt mean its any better

I agree, flash is by default faster, its a different tech. But if you are going to ask me if I would get an Ipod or this Sharp, I would say um, uh, dunno. I can't compare the two, should I get the much much faster one, or the much much larger capacity one??

btw, I would mind having both...

it might look better than an ipod but i'll still go for ipods since it's not popular yet and not sure if it will last long.

the glossy look and metalllic feel should be it's main attraction...

it might kill the ipod trend... they have the radio and transmitter plus tghe SD card as their selling point... it might b hard to scroll through songs or files but it doesn't reali matter.. other players like zen are also selling well.. SD cards are common among mobile phones and it can prove to be useful at times..




One night i was lying on my bed looking at the stars and i thought to myself... "where the fuck did my roof go?!"

The looks aren't as good, the buttons aren't as sexy and the capacities aren't as big. I wouldn't call it an iPod Nano killer either.
Until they come out with something just as attractive or more attractive than the iPod Nano, the can call all their products iPod killers all they want but it will not happen.

I pointed that out because it's not as black-and-white as you make it out to be; you can't really call them two different "technologies" when both are storage mediums.

If I told you to choose between a Nissan Altima and some sort of Lamborghini, which would you choose? One's obviously a lot more economical, and your choice is bound by your preference and your resources (money).

It's the same case here; we're not really comparing apples and oranges because these still fall in the same boat.

The fact that everyone has already compared the iPod with this new Sharp thing more or less proves my point. You can say "zomg theyre only comparing teh lookz", but that's what people are going to compare given nothing else important.

every product has similiar looks which product out there that is popular that isnt look the same in one way or another. cars cell phones tv's you name it there is always something that look similiar to each other. I think it's a marketing thing because high end brands like sony are over priced so the smaller company compete with similiar designs to snatch profit from the small company :)
