Samsung YP-T8Z (1GB)4. Samsung YP-T8Z (1GB)
Price range: $154-200
The good: Nice set of features; interesting form factor; above-average battery life.
The bad: Messy button layout; need for video conversion to .svi extension.
The bottom line: The Samsung YP-T8Z is well featured and offers good sound, plus it goes out to prove that phones and PDAs aren't the only devices that offer multimedia entertainment in a small package.
Apple iPod Nano (4GB)5. Apple iPod Nano (4GB)
Price range: $189-249
The good: Gorgeously slim; easy to use; comes with iTunes.
The bad: Scratches easily; no FM radio.
The bottom line: This slim offering from Apple may be limited in terms of features; however, for looks alone, the iPod Nano currently has few equals.
Creative MuVo Vidz (1GB)6. Creative MuVo Vidz (1GB)
The good: Decent audio; fuss-free video conversion; fast transfer speed.
The bad: Tiny screen; below-average battery life.
The bottom line: It's a decent enough video player, given its size, but for serious mobile movie buffs, the Creative MuVo Vidz is just not worth the popcorn.
