My trusty old Rio Carbon died the other day when it fell out of its little carrying case and was abruptly introduced to the cold, harsh reality of a concrete parking garage floor. RIP, Rio.
I needed a replacement (otherwise I can't bear spending time at the gym) but I wasn't going to buy one of these and I also wasn't going to wait for one of these because my requirements are basically "very small," "plays WMAs," and "must be in-stores now."
The Clix meets those requirements and is pretty cute, too. It just arrived and my first impressions (without actually using it yet – how hard can it be to screw up "playing music"?!?):
Well, that's about it so far; as long as it can actually play the music while I'm in the gym, it will have met my needs. If not, I'll let you know more later...

Not sure what types of plugs you're converting from/to, but there should be something out there that'll prevent you from having to carry two cables; you'll have to have your phone cable and a little conversion dongle, but for under 5$ it's probably worth it (lot cheaper to replace if you lose it).
Thanks Will; unfortunately it's not a standard Mini-B connector :-(
(Click the image to see more). It looks like the same plug that was on my old T-Mobile PocketPC phone, but without a name for the plug I don't know what to look for in an adapter...
