Performance

The good: - Solid music player - sounds very good (w/ better 'phones) - Drag-n-drop file transfer - Plenty of apps, especially if you load full Android market - Easy connectivity The bad: - Froze several times early on, requiring full reboot (problem may have fixed itself with update?) - No track number shown on music player - Touch screen learning curve (see resistive touch screen comments) Overall: This device takes some getting used to. MediaMonkey for windows required an adjustment to put files in the correct place, but otherwise, media management is a snap. Screen controls can be touchy, but nothing I couldn't adjust to (use fingertip/nail for best results). Most apps work as I would expect them to.
