The market for MP3 players is a tough one, because it's dominated by Apple's iPod range, and also because it's a declining market, as more users opt to listen to music on their mobile phones. However, having produced a high-end Android smartphone in the shape of the Xperia S, Sony has followed up with the Android-based Z1000 touch-screen MP3 player, which was launched in September in Japan.

Top 10 posts of 2009 focused primarily on ebook readers

Last year I was still covering mobile phones on this blog as you can read in my best of 2008 post and then the editors of ZDNet and I decided to break out phones into my dedicated Smartphones & Cell Phones blog. I spent most of 2009 writing about all other mobile gadgets (ebook readers, media players, headsets, gaming devices, netbooks, etc.) here on the Mobile Gadgeteer site. As you can see in my top 10 most popular posts written in 2009, five of ten were on the subject of ebook readers, two were on MP3 players, and the others on various topics.

Mobile Napster site lets you download your purchased tracks OTA

As I have mentioned in the past I have a rather small personal music collection so I enjoy streaming music and subscription services that let me listen to a ton of music from several genres. I have been a subscriber to the Zune Marketplace (check out my thoughts on the service) since they started giving you 10 free songs a month, but do have some issues with the service since it is still not easy to find MP3 only files and if you forget to download the 10 free songs you lose them. Today Napster launched their new mobile site,, that gives you the ability to discover and download your music over the air.

Dead Finger Tech: Amazon Kindle ebook reader

You may have heard the term Dead Finger Tech before and if not, it relates to that piece of technology that you find essential or important enough to you that someone will have to pry it from your cold, dead fingers. The ZDNet technical bloggers are posting their DFT posts over the next week or two and for the Mobile Gadgeteer blog I had to think about the best piece of mobile gear (not a smartphone) that I treasure. So many pieces of my mobile gear (GPS, MP3 player, video player, portable gaming machine, ebook reader, etc.) can all be integrated into my smartphones so it came down to what one function do I like to perform off of my high end smartphone. Thus, my selected Dead Finger Tech gear is the Amazon Kindle device.

SIMORE dual SIM card -- FrankenBerry is ALIVE!

Two weeks ago, I kvetched about my wretched existence of having to carry two separate mobile devices for Voice and Data use -- a regular 3G cellphone and my inseparable BlackBerry 8820. Apparently, I'm not alone in this situation: some of you told me that you even carry two or more separate cell phones to have two phone numbers, one for work and one for personal use, and this doesn't count the other kit you have to carry with you, such as your MP3 player, your GPS unit and your camera.

What MP3 player and mobile phone sound the best to you?

I enjoy listening to music during my commute, while working out, and at other times throughout the day and most often use whatever mobile phone I happen to have to listen to those tunes. I also use dedicated MP3 players from time to time and Steve Laser recently approached me with a question about any differences I have found in digital audio players. He then put my response and feedback from several others in an article asking if all MP3 players sound alike. I think we all know the answer is No, but I enjoyed reading about the experiences and feedback that Steve assembled in the article.

AT&T's new OTA eMusic Mobile service results in $1.50 per song fee

AT&T just launched their new eMusic Mobile download service that allows you to download MP3 files from eMusic directly to your compatible mobile phone. eMusic is an online seller of MP3 music from independent labels that has is DRM-free so you can purchase and then listen to your MP3 songs on any device. I am a bit confused why anyone would want to pay AT&T US$7.49 per month for 5 song downloads (works out to just about US$1.50 per song) when you can just sign up for an eMusic account and get songs for only US$0.27 to US$0.33 each, depending on the monthly plan you sign up for. The eMusic Basic plan gives you 30 song downloads for only US$9.99 per month. I guess the AT&T eMusic Mobile service is all about wireless convenience, but that sure is a high convenience fee IMHO.
