MP3 player has bookmarking and bluetooth?

by pattersonmimi / December 16, 2009 11:15 AM PST

Tell me there an MP3 player that can bookmark and has Bluetooth. All the Creative MP3 players I've owned (Nano ZenV Mosaic) have great bookmarking capibilites but no bluetooth. I hate all the cords. I'm hooked on audiobooks--Audible, Netlibrary, Overdrive you name it so bookmarking is a must. I love the bluetooth feature on my Dell and iPhone. Though I've searched, I haven't found one yet. There must ba a bluetooth enabled MP3 with very good bookmarking somewhere. Any ideas?

Don't have one so I don't know how good it is (I've heard and read complaints over its UI, but it's supposed to be one sweet sounding device). Was one of the devices I did cursory research on before I bought my Sony X1061, and I remember reading that it has Bluetooth 2.0. Also I recall that it handles Audible audiobooks and can bookmark, though again with no hands-on I haven't a clue at how well it does any of this.

You should probably download the manual from Cowon and check for yourself.

Good point about quality of the bluetooth and bookmarking. I'ts one thing to offer the features, another that the features produce excellent results.

I'm looking for exactly that. Did you ever find anything that worked for you? I've had wonderful experiences with my circa 2008 Creative ZEN, but their new models don't even have bookmarks. Also, I don't like things that start with "i"

And what we have today.

Since we have seen the end or near demise of the MP3 player I moved on to that i device as well as use an Android player. Since there are apps that can replace the player, if you can't stand the stock player, you can find something else. Currently have the GoGear and may get some samsung thing if that fails.

Thanks for that info. Is the GoGear (I'd never heard of them/it) an android device? Is GoGear the manufacturer?

I googled that to find out.

https://www.google.com/search?q=gogear and here the first 4 hits answer this I think.

I'm encountering folk that get annoyed at such research but since I don't sell or represent any MP3 maker I thought I'd share what I moved to.

I've seen discussions about folk that want this with that and only if it has it with the other thing but never use that or in other words, they build a list that might result in nothing out there today. For me, this works so I shared.
