Hi! It´s time to get one of those last generation mp3 players but now I can´t make a choice: the archfamous i-pod VS the new sony HD3. (i can consider too i-river H320 or rio karma). I want the best... I´m interested on : - Battery life (30 h. vs 12 h.) probably the most interesting thing... - Ease of navigation ( the click-wheel seems very intuitive and easy to use ) - Weight and Size ( hd3 is lighter and a little bit smaller!!! ) - Software ( the thing that stops me on buying the sony is this fact. I´ve heard that sonic stage is terrible! - mmmh the sony comes with a pouch... interesting, none of them ( hd3 & ipod )comes with a dock... - Sound Quality ( I´ve heard something from an ipod, and it´s true it´s a bit flat and I like more bassy. Could be the Sony better, or the rio, or the iriver... Please write to help me with your impressions even you don´t own one of these machines. I can´t wait no more and I don´t wanna make a mistake.
