Pros: better features than ipod nano, price
Cons: design, bigger than ipod nano, low memory for price, ditty? come on
Summary: Ok, monkeyspankz is obviously a narrow-minded apple lover. More power to him, just don't slam the competition just because you love another product. Not everyone looks at a product the same way as you. If you have serious thoughts on a product please post them. Just don't slam something without knowing anything about it.
First - the Ditty isn't for looks, its an mp3 player that fits those with a small budget who don't mind listening to 5 1/2 hours (mp3 avg size of 6mb / 4 min length) of music then having to switch out songs.
Second, I'm currently deciding between getting the ipod nano or this ditty for my fiance for Christmas. While I know the ipod has great looks, more storage, the color screen - it also has a much higher price tag. The dell may cost more / MB, but if all I need is a couple of hours of music for light use then the Ditty fits perfect and saves me $100. She is going to use it 40mins +/- per day during workouts. At that rate the Ditty will last her all week without having to switch songs or recharge the battery. And to top it off - the Ditty can be used with just about any music store (except itunes) while the ipod can only be used with itunes (with a few hacked exceptions). So we can use subscription music or pay per song (cheaper than itunes I may note). Itunes may be the most popular but that is partly because ipod users can ONLY use it. The other services (napster, yahoo, rhapsody, etc) have made the music software/store easy to use as well and cheaper (without forcing a particular hardware manufacture to only use them).
My Ditty pros: enough memory for her needs, lower price, small enough, no moving parts, FM tuner
