All colors of the 1GB (and 512MB) MobiBLU are now in stock at Walmart.com for $129.99 ($100). With tax and priority shipping (going to canada in a couple weeks :) I paid $150, but that still isn't bad.

According to Walmart.com, this item is exclusive to their website.

Well it looks like the MobiBlu is indeed USB 2.0 so its a null issue now I guess.

in the article cheapyD posted the reviewer states it is NOT USB 2


Since this player isn't USB 2.0, transferring music and other files will take a little longer than you may be accustomed to. I personally don't find this to be that big of a deal considering this is only a 1 GB player.

The US (internatinal) version that Walmart carries is USB 2.0 and also supports WMA files.

What I like is that you can use it for protable storage also. I was on the verge of picking up a 1 gig flash stick this past week... but for $50 more I can get this...

Yeah that review is for the JNC not the morbiblu although they are very similar the USB speed seems to be one of the only differences

Yes, USB 2.0 and WMA support seem to be the only differences/improvements available in the Walmart/USA version. Also, Walmart is supposed to be only retailer in the USA to carry these.

Does anyone know if these can be purchased at Walmart, or is it only off the site?

Walmart.com says, "Exclusively at Walmart.com"

If Walmart can't meet demand, than nobody can.
