The N800 is the wrong class of machine

As Nokia labels it, the N800 is an Internet tablet. It's meant for browsing and communication, not media playback. There's no cellular hardware; you need Wi-Fi to hop online.

Look at a 16GB iPod touch; if you buy from Amazon or even a few other third-party stores (like Future Shop in Canada), you can sometimes find it for roughly $360. That's a much better deal than the 32GB model. It might not hold all your music, but it should hold enough to make sure you don't miss out on your favorites. I'd suggest creating a smart playlist with, say, 14GB of your most-played tracks.

I actually like the Zune 80, but the software limits make for something of a dealbreaker. It's Windows-only, it's not that easy to get third-party programs working with the Zune, and it's missing a lot of handy features like audiobooks or smart playlists.

One addition on the iPod touch
by electronista / February 23, 2008 9:52 AM PST

I should clarify: the $360 price is usually without the "software update" pack that adds e-mail, Google Maps, notes, and the stock/weather widgets. It's closer to $380 with the pack built in, but if you can live without them, that makes it much more tempting. You can always add the software update pack later for $20 through iTunes.

even as a media player like any open device there's lots to choose
go here to see some things

of course it's not for everyone but anyone who likes a good open device that's a pretty good price too
