There's nothing like being able to walk around, ride a bike, or workout at the gym with a large collection of music to hear. I use to own an iPod shuffle. Unlike, my boyfriend who can't go a minute without listening to music and needs a device that can hold his entire library, I only need a media player that holds enough music for short outings. At the time, the iPod Shuffle was perfect for me.
I wasn't even planning to replace my media player when I lost it, but one day I was in Kinko's buying ink for my Epson when I came across the V-Bop created by Virtual Land. I had never even heard of the company before that day.
It's a very slick looking device. It's about the size and style of the iPod Classic. The front is made of strong, black plastic and the back is stainless steel. It doesn't store nearly as much as the iPod Classic, but it does include 2GB of video, voice recording, ebook, picture viewing, and music capabilities. All of this is available for the same price as the iPod Shuffle. It hasn't left my hip since the day I bought it.
The sound quality is great, too.
