And failed still today to find a 100% as good replacement (for my needs of course). So when it came out on mobile I was happy to try it and it beat all the others, as expected.
I for one don't carry my mobile phone around with me all the time, though. But I do carry one of my Creative Zen Nano Plus' (I bought five or so on eBay after the first one broke so I have enough for a lifetime and can pick a colour fitting the outfit. They sell for around 5-10 bucks these days if you are patient).
