"Rockbox is an open source firmware for mp3 players"

The first line on our web page, kind of our mission statement, is not really
true these days, is it?

I don't think Maemo and Android devices really qualify as "mp3 players" or at
least I don't think many people think of them as such. And it's not even a
"firwmare" unconditionally anymore.

It kind of feels wrong when I read it. Should we bother to change the phrase
and if so, to what?

   "Rockbox is open source software for portable music players" ?
