My wife has wanted to get an MP3 player for a while and I have been looking for the right one. I have a couple of (ViewSonic and Hitachi)PocketPC's that I use and have been thinking about why not just use the PPC to play the music. The problem is that using the PPC to play the music isn't as easy as a single purpose device like the iPod. The software that is out there is ok but I found a program emulates the iPod on a PocketPC.

Check out the iPod clone for the pocketpc from and it's only $20. (disclaimer: I don't have anything to do with this company)

What is your experience with using the PocketPC as a MP3 player?
