    I have a little 256MB mp3 player.It's realy tiny.Sometimes I'm realy afraid I could break it.The smaller stuff gets, the more you have to take care of it.

    I think they make them that small for another reason, so you will lose it and buy a new one. lol :p

    Ipods are a waste of money. If someone got pissed at you they could snap this thing in half.

    Better get a Zen Xtra and lay the smackdown with its solid metal construction.

    BTW Zen beat apple to the punch for a small sleek mp3 player-

    Ah yes but no color screen. I would love to have a Zen Micro though. But as I said my music collection is too big.

    zen micro 8 GB with colour screen

    I saw the post above and knew I have seen zen micro WITH colour screen somewhere... I browsed a bit and here we go: Zen Micro 8 GB with colour screen reviewed on dapreview. Interesting. I wonder why they do not promote it better. This could knock Ipod out, I mean it is 8 GB tiny player, with colour screen and player itself comes in 10 not just 2 colours like ipod. Plus it was awarded some (?) CES best award, WTF??? Looks like best player ever!

    Exactly. Plus it has a FM radio and voice recorder, and can record from the radio.
