Im looking into buying a 1GB mp3 flash based player for when i go running or to the gym. The ipod shuffle seems ideal in terms of size/weight and at £99 for 1GB seems like decent VFM. Now I dont wanna buy one just to jump on the bandwagon - i'd much rather have the best device for the job. I'd be using it for MP3's (75% capacity) and also data transfer to and from work (the remanining 25%). The idea of the shuffle charging from the USB port is nice - do all the flash based players do this? Can anyone recommend a better alternative than the shuffle, or should I go ahead and order the shuffle?
