Looks like it, at least according to Gizmodo’s tally of people that got the chance to play with it ahead of release.
I must admit, I want one and I’m sure the video on this device is awesome (having seen Vladfire on first gen) but $249 for me is a showstopper. Two years ago, sure. A year ago, maybe. But today I look at what $250 buys and a portable media device at $249 just seems like a mountain of cash.
I guess time will tell if this is the great player to dethrone Apple, but for the moment I’m sticking with my iPod Shuffle clippy.
