Just had my i300x Tantrum too. :evil:
after calming down and looking at the specs, it appears at first glance to be identical other than an extra 1GB on the HDD. - Hope they enable the loudspealer for fonecalls on the next one. (theres gotta be a patch for that somehow)
Thought it was flinkin cheeky tho, i300 wasn't readily UK available till the end of last year then as soon as we get hold of em they superseed it. -- Blaggards!! -- :x
Never mind. Ive found that using HDD for music only and running every thing else from Transflash (including saving camera photos) optimises the slim battery life. TomTom actually seems to run smoother from the Solid state. Memory Access time seems to be quicker.
apparently 1GB Transflash available very soon this year from sandisk. One could always store mucho music on HDD and transfer 5cds worth as a time to Transflash for listening to conserve power.
Now iv'e got in the habit of whckin it into the cradle b4 bed each nite i think i've reached a good compromise on battery life, storage and outright music quality. Plugged my Sennheiser HD 25's into it the other nite and it nearly blew my head off. Awesome!!.
As far as upgrades go it doesnt look hopeful at the moment after having to explain that its not impossible to Flash the ROM, to more than one person i contacted at samsung to find out about WM5. Maybe i just got through to the wrong people. We'll soon find out as soon as someone gets hold of an i300x. If theres WM5 on there then surely it shouldnt be too hard for someone brainier than me to ghost the rom.
