I'm thinking ahead...  
Sometime in the next year, I wanna get myself a new MP3 player... preferably one that can also show pictures and even video... right now, I'm leaning towards an 8GB iPod Touch, since they price is pretty good considering all it can do, including wi-fi (so if I wanted to check my email or google maps or something while out shopping, all I'd need to do is find somewhere with wi-fi access...), and the ability to have the Kindle App on it so I can read kindle purchases wherever I am...

But the Samsung Galaxy Android Player seems to have a lot of the same (wifi, various apps, Amazon's Kindle page says they have an android app...), and it comes with a travel adapter (so it can be charged via outlet instead of just USB... iPod you have to be the adapter separate) and the price is comparable... same can be said of the Philips Android Connect...

And there's a couple devices from my current players brand (iView) which have wi-fi... some even have bigger screens... and they're cheaper... but they may not allow for e-book reading... however with a 7inch screen, I could read my kindle stuff online if I had to... or with how much cheaper they are, I could also get an e-reader from the same brand for really cheap... lol

Edit: And now I have to add that really the Kindle Fire is the same price as the iPod Touch, with a screen twice as big, wi-fi that allows email and web browsing, allows netflix and hulu access, has adobe flash (so youtube vids can be watched...)... so this may end up being a completely unneeded post because the mroe i liike at the Kindle Fire? The more I think it's my best bet... especially since, while it does allow music playback, my current MP3 player does work just fine, so I wouldn't really need the kindle for music much... lol

Anyway, I'm wondering if you guys have any opinions on the options I listed above? Other suggestions?

To me, the most important thing is it must have at least 8GB capacity (which is what my current mp3 player is), plays both music and video, and the screen is at LEASt 3 inches (again, like my current one). I'd LOVE to have wi-fi connection using it, but that isn't an absolute must, just a serious want...

Part of me says "Get it as soon as you decide on one!" part of me says "Make it your reward if you hit 50K on NaNo this year!" and the last part of me says "Wait until your next tax return at the earliest!"... but I think that I'll plan that if i hit 50K or more on NaNo I'll reward myself with whatever my choice is, otherwise, I'll get it with my tax return next year... lol
