Oh dear

How long before this is offered free with their machines, along with a printer and scanner?

The party finished years ago. Dell with just embarrass themselves with a not-as-good-as-the-ipod facsimile.

This could be interesting

not so much as Dell busting out with a MP3 Player, Hell my dead Granny could do that! But, I'm actually more interested in what Dell has planed for there Music Store.

Personaly I'm hopping (I know for quite alot here), for a real iTunes killer App, DRM infected-Free Tracks, and a nice bit of undercutting Apples 0.99¢ price range. i.e. Tracks that only cost 0.75¢ Apple would need to change there Pants then, One thinks!!

* The Jolly Roger cause according to Steve "The most common format of music on there [Insert Mp3 Player HERE] is stolen"....

cool, should be good.

all i'd like to add is that it should have decent recording capabilities.

i just got a creative zen 4gb and it only records at 160k max (in the wma format) and that isn't really good enough for me. (apart from that it's not a bad little toy)..

i'd like at least 320k mp3, but preferrably wav/aif (uncompressed) format.

i've loked everywhere and so few of these "mp3 players" record from a line in. most have microphone in, but no line.

cheers,

bill

OGG support?

The only thing that keeps me from getting the iPod Classic 160Gig is the lack of OGG support. The first player to offer OGG support and similar storage capacity gets my money...

Re: that reminds me...

IT Zoom(une)'d into the Trash Bin of History, I think it was Walmart (or some such outlet), that decided to stop flogging this crap 'cause nobody wants it.

Myself I'm planing on upgradeing my old iPod 3G (The all Touch Red Buttons One), with an 16Gib Jesus Phone here shortly...
