If you care to properly read the last couple of pages you'll see I've just been responding to posts such as yours which are directed at me in one way or another. It's not me keeping it going.

That may well be the case but on Dunes part it shows a fairly cavalier disregard for their customers. How else could that manifest itself? Perhaps early next year they'll launch something new and...

If I'd paid £269 for it and they couldn't provide then not too pleased :)

There are plenty of decent media players around and the Dune is really too expensive to be letdown in this fashion.

The link you pointed to has been there for ages. I'm not sure why they would remove Android from the spec sheet if they intended to provide it?

Yes you are correct it's gone from the spec sheet and it's concerning. Apparently Dune has form for reneging on promises.

I prefer the Solo to A500 for its ability as a player. The A500 wouldn't play a number of files that the Dune does both 4K demo material and imperfect 1080p rips. It was also very slow to boot at...
