  1. Will there be any open source support for this device? Gravel looks pretty interesting, depending on the pricing at retail level.

  4. […] Commodore vuelve al ruedo con un reproductor Friday, September 01, 2006 1:00 PM por fabian Que alegría sentí al leer este post y ver que la empresa Commodore sigue viva. Les recuerdo que Commodore es la marca de las computadoras C64 que fue para  muchos de nosotros nuestra primera computadora. Ahora Commodore presenta un nuevo reproductor MP3 con muchísimas características muy interesantes Archivado en: Tecnología, Música, Commodore, C64 […]

  5. Hi,

    This Commodore device looks very intresting. Since I’m an Amiga fan I really hope that Commodore and AmigaOS can do some kind of joint venture soon. I’d love to see Amiga OS4 running on this device. Amiga OS4 has a very small footprint, it’s fast and powerful and has many applications and games. I promise many of the members of http://www.amigaworld.net would buy it immediately if that was the case. The rest of the world would follow soon after that…

    Best Regards,

  6. Hi,
    This device looks really good! As the device has WiFi, will it have some sort of browser? what about Flash / Flash Lite?


  7. Looks interesting, but someone please correct the apostrophe abuse before it gets to market!

    Video’s?? Ack!

  8. No FLAC or OGG? I really hope you can use FTP or usb mass storage to load the songs on. The last thing the world needs is another mp3 player that requires you use WMP or some piece of proprietary crapware to load songs on

  9. Hi. I’m Renato, from São Paulo, Brazil. I’m so glad to know that the Commodore brand is up and running again! I loved my C64, it was the best machine ever 😀
    I hope the Gravel’ll be as smashing as the C64 and Amiga computers. Can’t wait to get one! (This will sound so nerdy, but the thought of getting a new machine with the classic Commodore logo makes me really happy.) All the best for the Gravel line and for the company. Hope you’ll soon release new Commodore PCs!!!!

  10. Hello.
    I liked your site. Very useful resource. THE BEST.



  11. Hi
    Fantastic the Commodore Gravel! I would want that the Commodore held in AmigaOS4 consideration! the Amiga community says Enough to Amiga Inc.

  12. Nice apostrophe use in that screenshot! The video’s what?

  13. i just wish that mp3 players could also have some 10 band equalizers and bass boost functions-.~

  14. those generic mp3 players that are made in china are really cheap but i still prefer to use my ipod –*

  15. I’m looking for a WordPress magazine theme that let’s te readers subscribe to a newsletter. How do I find out if a template can do that? When I look at the demos I never come across this function. Thanks!.

  16. I am glad to be a visitant of this utter blog ! , thankyou for this rare info ! .
