@jonac13:
I agree with all you said but I'd suggest waiting until Black Friday. Radio Shack has the HTC phone you linked for $99, it's what I'll probably do.
Note the Samsung is a neat little product and I wouldn't knock it in any way, but as you said why not get a phone where at least you have the option of activating it later.
I don't have a link to RS's phone deal but I saw it in a ad scan on one of the Black Friday sites.

Do NOT order anything from Daily Steals!!! I purchased the WiFi range extender on Halloween, Its Nov 12th and the order status is still says N/A - they havent even PACKED my ITEM to SHIP!?!?! I I personally will never do buisness with them again... Sent them an email, and they said sorry, nothing we can do about it.. But they got my F*$%^cking money.

I'd avoid DailySteals. Poor customer service, multiple ripoff reports. Buyer beware.

@japmonster80: I've had similar experiences with them and they won't always take stuff back even if it isn't the real thing. They are a 3rd party seller and have actually told me I would have to deal with the company they were selling for so you don't even know who you are dealing with.

I have had problems with Dailysteals as well,still waiting for a refund

For this price, I'd probably just pick up the HTC One V ($139 via Amazon). For that you get:

- Android 4.0.3 rather than Android 2.3
- Sense 4.0 rather than TouchWiz for Gingerbread
- Size more complementary to 800x480 screen resolution (3.7" rather than 4.2", 252ppi)
- A more recent (read: more likely to be supported) device
- 5.0 MP back camera rather than 2.0 MP, along with HTC's better camera software w/ Sense 4.0
- Support for Virgin Mobile's cheap prepaid plans, should you ever want to actually use it as a phone
- Not related to specs: more reputable seller

@jmbunkin: I agree- I'm currently involved in a dispute with my credit card with them because they won't address a problem. They say "we're waiting to hear from our supplier!" Daily Steals is off my list...

I would avoid Dailysteals for any purchase over $5,will not buy from them again.

I have a Samsung Galaxy phone and a Third Gen iPod Touch. I want to replace the Touch with a new media player, and the Samsung Media Players are the closest thing to a Touch without being an Apple. I finally decided on the 4th Gen Touch for two reasons:

1) The Android media management system is piecemeal, making it very hard to manage the media on your device, especially podcasts and importing audiobooks that I already own on CD. iTunes is a relatively simple system that allows for a wide variety of media. Apple is also good at making updates available for older products.

2) Samsung does not seem to be interested in providing updates to older devices. My Galaxy did get updated to Gingerbread a few months ago, but they are so focused newer products right now that the only way I am likely to get ICS is if I root it. Too much fuss for me.

No deal I'm not paying $140 for Android 2.3. Make it Android 4.0, now we're talking ;)

I wouldn't trust daily steals, these guy tried to ship me a no name sd card when i ordered a SanDisk.

@crimsonpride88: I just picked up an original Droid X for the same purpose, $60 on craigslist, rooted it and stuck a 32gb card in it, then bought 2 batteries and a charger, gives me all day use :)
My OG iPod classic 120 gig is decaying in a desk drawer, and I'm ok with that...

I just bought a used HTC EVO 4g, an android phone, to use as my mp3 player. I got it for $55 though, and while this is better no doubt, I don't know if its worth that much more. But these android devices do make great mp3 players, and there's no doubt this would make a great device also, I just think you could be able to do better price wise

The fact that it doesn't have an apple logo on this makes me want to buy as a gift.

It's also only 140.... new. Wouldn't expect it to be as high end in every way with high end smartphones.

It's worth noting that, unlike the Galaxy S2 and S3 phones, this device has only a single-core 1GHz CPU. The camera is also not as good. It's a pretty neat player and a great alternative to an iPod Touch but don't think you'll be getting a Galaxy S2/S3 minus the phone with one of these.

EDIT: I also wanted to add that you can sometimes find actual older model Android phones with similar or even better specs for this price or cheaper on sale. There's always the option to use one of them as an Android player without activating the phone (though many sub-$150 phones may not be as attractive aesthetically).

Dang, it's like my Galaxy S2, without the phone.... wish this was the larger one
