Subject: RE: Questions of Rockbox on FMR
From: Mark Bright (mark.bright_at_btopenworld.com)
Date: 2003-11-29


>> Would it be worth it to sell the Recorder and buy a
>> FMR (on Amazon for $180)?

That is your call, but I feel I made a mistake doing
The same thing (In my case there was an iPod between
Them - but that was an even bigger mistake) - the Recorder
Form factor has more screen and button protection, and the
FMR has already been back for repair once due to duff
charging circuit. Finally I can carry spare cells with the
Recorder but not the FMR - OK with 15hrs battery life not
too critical but a valid point for many users

>> How is the loading times for the FMR? Will we ever see
>> flashed rom on the FMR's?
Mine is flashed - as soon as it was fully charged when it
Was delivered new, and again as soon as I had checked it
Was working correctly when back from repair.
Start up is about 4 seconds, certainly no more than 5

>> And i assume that the interface is the same.
Almost, the FMR has the Radio section... ;-)
