I currently own a 5th generation iPod Nano. It’s doing very well despite many hard smacks on the pavement and a cracked screen (the LCD display has leaked a bit). But all good things must come to an end, and one day I might have to say goodbye to it once I am no longer able to repair it (I imagine one day very soon, the spare bits and whatnot will also no longer be produced).
More to the point – Apple has discontinued its sale of the click-wheel iPod, and I would like to know what other viable alternatives are out there.
I do not want a touch screen MP3 player, because I really like to just stick my hand into my pocket and press away, knowing exactly what I am doing without looking. I’ve had a look at some of Creative’s products, Philips, Samsung, and Sony too, but they either don’t make non-touch screen players, or their players have teeny weeny little storage capacities (like 4-8 gb, and I’m looking more for something in the ballpark of 16gb and above).
- Equal to or more than 16GB storage
- FM radio if possible
- Mac OSX compatible
- NO touch screen (please gently let me know if there will soon be no such thing, and I will try not to cry dinosaur tears)
