Is it still practical to be anti-iPod?

Let me preface this by saying I've owned two Creatives, a cheapo RCA, two Cowon's and an Insignia. I've never had an ipod before and I hate all the lock-in stuff, iTunes, the closed OS, and all the...

What do you want to know?
It works. It has 8gb built in, 32gb card works in the SDHC slot. It has bluetooth. It's a decent all-around player if you can find one. It's discontinued and...

Any other players with Bluetooth and SDHC?

Like others, I'm tired of waiting for the promised-but-never-delivered FW update. When I bought it a year ago, it was the only player that had both SDHC and Bluetooth, but are there any other...

Yes UMS works. I use it exclusively and I always choose songs with the folder browser just like on my iAudio. Browsing by MP3 tags is too awkward for me.
