I wouldn't necessarily call the Zip an "upgrade" over the Plus, although speaking of FM, the Plus model (some of them anyway) had/has lousy reception and sometimes tend to drift off station.

Additionally, the Zip FM radio has RDS (or RBDS) which is nice (when it works) as it displays the radio station's call letters and scrolls the artist and name of the tune playing, provided of course the station is broadcasting it and whoever typed it into whatever it is that broadcasts it got it right.

Hmmm . . . I guess maybe it IS a "slight" upgrade after all.

I tend to prefer the Clip+'s keypad layout to that on the Zip too, but to each his own. The Zip's color screen does indeed suck long & hard though.
