This player holds A LOT & not just music! You can d/l pictures, movies, E-books etc ... & listen to the radio! This is so much easier than carrying around tablet or ipad! It fits right in your pocket! You can't even purchase a tablet for under $25! Great to bring to the gym or on a run/walk or for the kids so there's no fighting over what station on the raido to put on in the car. Definitely have to purchase more of these as Christmas stocking stuffers/gifts. Super easy to use too!
