If you want to be able to listen to music on the go, but you don’t like the music player function on your smartphone then you will probably be in the market for a music player. If, on the other hand, you don’t have a smartphone and you just want something that you can listen to music on while you are out and about, you probably won’t be after something with lots of bells and whistles on. Most people just want a music player that manages its primary function well, and the added extras of texting and games can just make the purchase all the more worthwhile.
So, if you have been on the hunt for a good music player for some time now, you might want to check out these four options. In no particular order, out favourite music players for 2012 are:
Sony Walkman F800
This powerful music player comes equipped with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, without the added smartphone capabilities. This means that the music player comes with lots of added extras, while also providing you with a fantastic pocket sound system. It comes in 8, 16 and 32GB varieties and has a 3.5 inch touchscreen, as well as Bluetooth, maps, email and other media functions.
Philips GoGear Connect 3
This portable mp3 player has Android 2.3 Gingerbread that allows it to act as a music player and half a smartphone. Why only half a smartphone? Because it can access apps from the Android Marketplace without being able to text or call through. This is more than enough for us though, as we love the look and feel of it, along with the fact that it comes with very nice headphones! It also has a 3.5 inch touchscreen and you can customise the sound of your music through the player thanks to the equaliser panel.
If you want to go for a true classic in the music player world, you should definitely get yourself an iPod touch. It’s incredibly thin and light and comes in a range of different colours to suit everyone’s tastes. It comes with a powerful camera that has an LED flash and face detection, and you can use it to play both music and video. You can also download and use apps from the App Store, and you can text over iMessage or chat with friends over FaceTime.
So, which of these music players do you think you will be going for?
