Alternatives to the iPod Nano

Just because everyone else wants an Apple iPod Nano doesn't mean you have to. CNET editors round up a selection of perfectly good alternatives to the iPod Nano.

The Cowon D2 is a worthy competitor.

Sure, the Apple iPod Nano is ultraslim, easy to use, and nice to look at, but it lacks desirable extras such an FM radio and a user-definable EQ, and the sound quality isn't exactly spectacular. Luckily, if you're not convinced you want to hop on the Nano bandwagon, there's a handful of worthy alternatives, and most of the ones I've rounded up for you beat out the Nano in audio fidelity. Of course, the important thing is selecting the best MP3 player for your needs, and I'm hoping one of these will do the trick.
