    Can any of you fortunate owners of a 600 post your comments on your experience with MP3 playing capabilities?

    -How does it sound?
    -How's the storage? (how much space does the .mp3 file acually take?)
    -How easy is it to transfer the file? Do you do it via the hotsync?

    As a 'bonus' how does Blazer 3 fare with sites with javascript?

    Thanks!

    All of these issues have been addressed at length in other threads, but quick answers:

    -How does it sound?
    It sounds great. With the built-in speaker, it's comparable to a small hand-held FM radio. With headphones, it sounds as good as an iPod, roughly (I am not an audiophile).

    -How's the storage? (how much space does the .mp3 file acually take?)
    A typical pop song encoded at a typical stream rate will run about 3 to 3.5 megs. The storage is SD cards. Divide the SD card's storage by the estimated file size to determine the approximate number of songs you can fit. I wouldn't put mp3s in the PDA's built-in memory except to test.

    -How easy is it to transfer the file? Do you do it via the hotsync?
    It is pretty easy. You toggle in the hotsync manager to send it to the card instead of to the device itself. Better yet, get a card reader, USB 2.0 or firewire. They are available cheap - easily under $30. They give you drag and drop access as if the card was a Zip disk.

    As a 'bonus' how does Blazer 3 fare with sites with javascript?
    It does fine for me, so far. Overall, the Web browser is really impressive.
