I finally got my Sansa Connect and I think that the Sansa, while not a great gadget as of now, it is certainly the start of something great. My short review of it is that the gadget itself is extraordinary, compact, inviting, but as it is available now the Sansa Connect is only great if you love Yahoo´s music platform as it is geared to work and promote that platform. I have been a user of Yahoo Music for a couple of years now and while I have my Martinvars1 radio there, what I like most on the internet is freedom of choice and to me the best Sansa Connect is one that has Yahoo Music and LastFM, and Pandora, and whoever else I like. Now having said this, I do think it is worthwhile to buy the Sansa Connect because the Yahoo Service has access to most music that is available and it is great to have an ipod like device that “contains” most music you would ever want to listen to.

Only one word: iPhone

(Okay, few more – Do the rest matter? None has been able to get the double digit market share over iPod, for years)

You should take a look at the Archos 605 WiFi – http://www.archos.com/products/gen_5/archos_605wifi/

it’s another wifi based mp3 player that’ll allow access to the internet, and play back flash videos such as on youtube. i think there was a mention about them possibly working with fon hotspots in france too (i really hope so :o). I’m not sure what it’ll do with last.fm’s online player, but i’ve seen a few messages in forums asking for a widgit or plugin for it. personally i just want something that’ll send back my played tracks to last.fm to appear in my charts.

I’d suggest Commodore Gravel; which will give you access to TERABYTES of music & movies via a FON compliant Wifi interface… so you’ll have access to all this music via 150.000 hotspots arround the world.

Currently all buyers of a Commodore Gravel get a Fonera as well!
