I do not need Bluetooth, but the rest is exactly what I search for years now.I don't know if it was already proposed, but I was thinking about this for a while, because I like the quality of the Pandora audio, but I'm unable to use it when I'm running/snowboarding, so...
Here how can be a Portable Music Player I can blindly buy if it was produced:
- Small, starting with a maximum 4x6 cm
- Simple LCD 2 color display (with backlight), with like 2 or 4 row of text, just to be able to read long names or paths
- Physical buttons
- Touch screen (capacitive) with the lower resolution possible, just to be able to show the icons to press, and show some lines of text
- A physical volume control, exaclty like the one on the pandora, maybe smaller
- A small NAND just for the firmware (maybe open source)
- SD (or micro-SD) slot for the songs (and for firmware reflash, just in case)
- mini usb for charging/connecting with the PC (that has to be able to see both the NAND and the SD)
- Bluetooth (for wireless stereo hearphones and for connecting to the pc or car stereo)
- MWeston working on it
Optional if there is space:
GPS, or accellerometer or, you know, the things that can be useful when you run, to make statistics
What do you think about this ?
right! totally forgot about that.So, seems like no one wants BT connectivity
Not available in my area.The Cowon D2 family (D2, D2+, D20) are:
1) Well established
2) Not utter Cr@p
3) Capable of reading full-size SDHC cards (maybe SDXC too?)
4) Somewhat bigger that the above specifications
That might be your best bet if no heroic hardware manufacture wants to step up.
Thats exactly what I have. I just lack the integration at the momentI always thought it would be neat to have a RockBox Car stereo.
That would also be an idea
