I agreed about the "Play" function before, and really, to me, "Play" is the
Navigation button pressed in the center.
It would not bother me if the "Play" button on the side was for something
else, as I really only use that for pause.
But I think that the Navi button also pauses, on the iRivers, so that would
not even be that important on the outside button.
again, IMHO, and for what it's worth.

On iriver platforms, if you push PLAY on a song in the browser while no
music is playing, it will behave as you describe. However, if you push
PLAY in the browser while music is playing, it will invoke the WPS, but
it will not play the song that you had selected in the browser. You
need to press NAVI (or the joystick button if you are using an H100
series) or the right arrow to replace the currently playing file with
the selected file.
I like being able to return to the WPS from any level of the browser.
I've suggested in the past that the same functionality be applied to the
PLAY button in the menu system without having to cancel out of multiple
levels of menus. Since the NAVI button/joystick and the right arrow are
currently redundant in the browser (both will open the selected folder,
execute the selected file, etc.), my preference would be to use the
right button to add a song to the current playlist, and to keep the
existing function of the NAVI button/joystick.
