    I apologize if this has been asked before--I did a search and couldn't find the answer.

    Does anyone know if the mp3 player is based upon Pocket Tunes, or is it something else? Is it their own software?

    They've added RealPlayer for the default mp3 player, which I will promptly remove and replace with PTunes Deluxe.

    I love pTunes, and the people who make it, but I would often getting skipping on playback whereas with Real Player I don't. I really don't like Real because they try to sell you so much junk and dominate your computing platform, but their player works. Any ideas why? Maybe they use bigger buffers? I use a SanDisk 512... I know it a slow hog, but it passes the speed mark test...

    Yup, IMO the bundled free real player is a step down from the free ver of Ptunes HS gave when you registered your Treo. But hey it's free... anyway, Aeroplayer is also now compatible with the Treo afaikafaikafaik...

    What does expansion card mean? Just additional memory or something I don't know about?

    "RealPlayer (Smartphone application)
    Transfer your personal music collection to an expansion card (sold separately) to play on the Treo 650 smartphone."

    Yes, it does. If you download DRM songs from Real's site, you can upload them to your Treo and listen to them. I've used a few players on my Treo600, and I finally settled on the RealPlayer. It doesn't give me as many options as other players, but it does a fine job of playing music.

    I've never been a big fan of Real in the past, but I must admit, they're moving in the right direction IMHO.

    I've been downloading songs for .99 at Napster. I guess I won't be able to play them on my new Treo 650? I never really thought about it. I just figured they we're my songs now and I could play them wherever. I only bought a few thank goodness.

    I thought that Real Player would be in the ROM and therefor not removable.

    I doubt RealPlayer is in ROM, since none of the third party included software ever has been. Its going to get deleted the minute I get it and be replaced with ptunes which is awesome.

    From the P1 chat:

    Nov 09 11:24:18 <PalmOne> RealPlayer can be installed or removed on the Treo 650 depending on the needs of the end-user.

    Yeah, probably not likely. Also try playing them on a Macintosh or Linux. I bet that's a no go too. IMO this is the main problem with these downloadable services. I'd rather just buy a digital license gives me the right to download music into any format that might be useful for my specific player. Don't know if and when we'll see that though.
