I agree. An 8" tablet is about the perfect size, IMHO. Small enough to be portable enough that I am more willing to throw it in my workbag to use to read ebooks or watch movies on the train going to...

You can get a one of those pre-paid/no contract Android cell phones fairly cheap. They normally have good sound, the only downsides may be the battery life, needing an app to provide a near...

Is it me or has the Tablet market kinda stagnated? I admit that I haven't really been looking at the Tablet market too much the past couple of years, but is seems to me that there's not been a whole...

Two additional downsides where phones lose to dedicated DAP's:
1) Boot times can be longer (though my experience is limited to only a couple of phones that I and my wife are using only as DAP's,...

I can recommend the Samsung Prime Core, but as far as "carrier", I'd go with whoever has it on sale. The version for Cricket, at least, has a very quick boot time, but as I said in my previous...

Outside of the expensive "boutique" DAP's, I have to respectfully disagree with Rudgas. There is definitely a lacking in the sub $150 price point of a good non-iPod, expandable memory, DAP, IMHO.

I have to agree, for the most part, with BB. When we bought our latest desktop, it came with Windows 7, which was fine, we did not have any issues with it, but it was right before Windows 8 came out...

Its been a couple of months since I read anything about the Rockbox Android app, but apparently, it was, if not still, very buggy and not worth trying. Personally, I don't see a need to use Rockbox...
