No, if you want style/design, you still wouldn't go for iPod. You'd want to go for Philips
or maybe the olympus m:robe
But did you look at the new M:Vision? It's really an awesome player. The screen is gorgeous.
It's not out yet, but from what I've heard Zen is trying to get it out before christmas... I'd wait if I were you.
If $300 was my budget, I'd go for the zen.
But now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my parents will be nice enough and get me a nice shiny cowon a2 for my birthday in 17 days... (a decent present, for once, please?)
P.S. Are those pics working? ^^^
