"nicer" is kind of vague
the Sansa Clip is a nice alternative to the Stone
there's also the Sansa View that's coming out and is a fight against the Nano
Archos also has a new 105, but I haven't seen a review so don't know what that offers yet
I have a Archos 504 and I lost my creative stone. I need something to replace the stone but I would like it to be a little nicer. (Like an ipod) I was thinking about a 3g ipod nano because I could workout with it but I could also take it along when I go into town or something.(Since I can't really do that with the Archos) What is you opinion? Thanks!
