05-31-2000, 06:39 AM
i just read the spec of nomad II on the ZDnet.com, they state that nomad II has 64MB memory already built in..... so does it mean that we are getting 64+32MB of memory from the emusic.com deal? or am i just a complete idoit who doesnt know what am i talking about........ anyway, just a random thought, hope u guys dun mind.

No, I'd put money down that ZD is wrong, but no it comes without any with it... THE new MG NomadII may have that support. www.nomadworld.com (http://www.nomadworld.com)

I said this before and it's just a guess, but I suspect that Emusic.com made a volume purchase of the Nomad II with the 64MB option and they chose to defray the cost of their promo by substituting the 32MB memory instead, which would then give them the ability of offing the 64MB module on the third party market. I do not know this to be the case, but it seems like a reasonable guess.

Doesn't seem likely, I don't see EMusic people changing 5000 cards, in my opinion they ordered from Creative Labs at a hefty disocount 5000 NomadII players with the 32MB option. Since it wasn't a big seller (the 32) they decided to offer EMusic a bargin... Emusic figured only about 5000 people would take this offer up, like other companies with EBusiness discounts, they learned the hard way... 5000 gone in 3 days, well I hope it promote their business!!! I liked the site, but they need more music and bigger artists and the option to encode above 160...
Well, I will be on the lookout for my NomadII player, too bad this wasn't for the JukeBox (the 6GB player!!!)
How much 64mb memory cost if I want to buy extra memory?
the Nomad II just got a really positive review in the new Maximum PC magazine. It comes in three flavors. There is a 64mb version (listing, I think, for $299), the $229 32mb version that emusic offered, and a 0mb version for $99. The player uses standard smartcards. Pricewatch has the 32mb smartcards selling for about $65 right now.

Actually, You can but the Nomad 2 with 64, 32, or no memory. The one without memory is $99.
There is no built in memory. There are 2 slots for the memory. So, you could add a 64 and have 96 if you want to.
I believe in this version there is only 1 slot for the memory
