Thanx, and that is interesting rockbox as an app?
Yes i use a Motorola Devy plus, but it is too heavy/and cumbersome for
outdoor activities... but if rockbox use a music player that is more
stable than the Motorola one, which always crashes... that might be
usful for travelling.
as for bluetooth headphones I can recommend "Soundsters sport"
(momentarily not available, but should be again soon). a brilliant set
I have been using now for a few weeks, that links beutifully both as a
hands free, head set with mic, to the phone and the music with very good
