(That's not me assuming, that's my personal experience from asking the hundreds of people I've met that have phones capable of playing music if they use their phone to do so - I've yet to meet a single non-iPhone owner that does so - if I ever meet one of you folks that does, I'll gladly revise/revoke my "blanket" statement.)
    That might be because the MP3 software on most phones is crap or perhaps because the phone lacks a 3.5mm audio jack (e.g. Centro or almost any HTC smartphone) or perhaps the limited memory capacity most of these devices (including the Pre) have. The other reasons I don't use the MP3 player on the Centro are the possibility of damaging the headphone jack and I don't want to tax the limited PalmOS by doing too many things at once.

    I use my 700p as my media player. 4 gb SD card on it...with about 50 kb or free space on it. I think 8 gb will be fine with me. Usually when I want to listen to some old jams it's at home on my PC or a long car ride...which I can easily prep for.

    BTW...if you want a good 2.5mm to 3.5mm converter for a Palm product the best is BOSE. I bought a mobile conversion kit from them and their palm connector is perfect.

    Dr. J & Preference;

    Count me in as one of those people as well. Right now I have two TX's and a 755p. I am on Verizon through work so switching to a Pre on Sprint is NOT an option at this time. I have a 160gb iPod Classic for carrying around my entire music collection, so anything I do with my smartphone would be as a secondary media player and likely with an emphasis on video playback.

    That said, I am going to insist on having at least 16GB (prefereably via removable card), a removable battery, 320x480 or greater screen, and a 3.5mm headphone jack in whatever my next "new" smartphone will be. So that pretty much rules out everything between HTC's offerings, the Pre, and the iPhone. BTW, I tried a BB Storm for a few days and absolutely hated it.

    If the Pre were available right now on Verizon I don't know that I'd grab a first-gen model. I'm definitely not switching providers to get one. So right now I am contemplating whether to tough it out for another year with my current setup or pick up a cheap spare 755p or a Centro "just in case".

    You'd be surprised by the people who had (and still have) no clue the Centro or Treo even plays music.

    Well, I hope I am at least thanked for causing this argument
