    cute, but the fact is that you can't hold that much on a pocket pc i believe. and the cost is only cheap if you already have a pocket pc.

    any modern palm or pocket pc can play music, but like Mac mentioned, its a matter of storage space. Now I do believe storage is getting more and more for the palms, but nowhere near the ipods capacity.

    I personally like the mp3 playing jump drive they've got now, pretty nice, small, probably holds about 3 or 4 albums?

    If it was based completely on storage, then companies that had 40GB MP3 players before the iPod would be selling more.

    So it isn't all based on storage.

    you are right. its also based on hype.

    Apple is good at creating hype.
