Which mobile phone for the gym?

I'm looking for a mobile phone that has a good MP3 player with a headphone socket, that I can use at the gym. I'd like a camera and Net access too -- is this too much to ask?

Hi, I am due an upgrade soon and I'm looking for a mobile phone that has a good MP3 player with a headphone socket, that I can use at the gym or when walking the dog. But I'd also love to have a camera and use the Net. In short, I want a mobile that does everything. Am I asking too much or can anyone give me any ideas?

Don't worry, you're not asking for too much -- I think I have the phone for you. The Nokia N82 packs an MP3 player, a 5-megapixel camera with xenon flash and a good Internet browser, with the option to install third-party applications. You can also plug in a standard pair of headphones or use wireless Stereo Bluetooth ones.

Of course, it's a little on the chunky side, and if you don't want to lug it around you could always opt for the Nokia 5310. It only has a 2-megapixel camera and no Wi-Fi or 3G, but it does come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can use your normal headphones. It also boasts dedicated music keys, and it's also only 10mm thin, so it'll fit in your tracksuit bottoms just fine.
