This is super cute and also super portable. It's on my list of small and cute gadgets. This 1GB is small so that it's portable and definitely easier to carry than any other mp3 player. Other than playing music it also has more than that of course. It also has a small screen so that you know what is playing. It also comes with earphones. Even though I'm posting this on my blog I've not told you everything so you might want to go to : http://www.datakits.co.uk/ When i compared this to my ipod of course it not as complicated but if your someone who doesn't want much you can buy this.
