I dont know about that one.

I'm looking at the 20gb sony one at present, its smaller than the ipod and got 40hr battery life, but the only thing is you cant get all the cool stuff like the i-trip and docking stations because its sony. So will probably end up with an ipod myself

I've got one of the earlier sony walkmans, the NW-HD1 and its pretty sweet, smaller and shinier( these things are important) than an ipod with loads better battery and you do get a docking station with it, no itrip though.

Unfortunately I dropped it in the snow the other week and the screen has died so its like having a 7000 song ipod shuffle, hopefully its in warranty and I'll be able to get a new one.
Anything worth doing is worth getting hurt for

nightmare! the docking station i meant was the Bose one you can get for the ipod. That has awesome sound quality considering how small it is!

Its this little thing that you plug in the top that emmits a radio signal. You can then tune your radio into the same frequency and hear your music. No cable required.

Only downside is its technically illegal in the uk. so you can only get them of ebay

In Canada I bought a faux Itrip designed to be used with all other mp3s and the like - takes two AAA batteries and broadcasts a signal for car stereos and stuff - Great except that in US and Canada there are huge expanses of unused bandwidth where as here it broadcasts right in the local radio range so you have to keep retunign and flicking the channel over (we are talking a very limited channel selection 73.1 to 73.9 from memory in .2 step changes which is in line with the itrip). Useless if you are driving.

I dont think the itrip is any better (or so my mate who had one in Canada says).
Waiting for the winter.....
