My Touch 4G 64GB was stolen a few months back.
I used my Touch 4G as a portable player while working out. I could watch video while riding an elliptical, then listen to compressed audio while lifting. Also I could load up on games and toss it to the kids on long car and train trips.
And for work? Every weekend I would cue up some WAVs on my Touch 4G, plug it into a SendStation PocketDock and route the signal through a Radial JPC into a 25KW professional sound system while tuning the rig to the performance space. Then between band sets I'd queue up a playlist of compressed dance tracks.
All of this worked great for me. Then some bastard ripped me off. Die, scumbag.
For the time being I'm using my Galaxy SII phone while working out, and my Windows 8 notebook with a FIIO E10 at gigs. The phone's doing OK but I'd rather have a separate device for entertainment -- notifications keep popping in, and the battery gets drained and stuff like that. The notebook is cumbersome and is often overkill when I just need to roll off a WAV or two at soundcheck. But that E10 sure does sound AWESOME.
A replacement should have the same or better SQ. I could carry an LOD or a USB DAC for use at shows. I probably won't use a DAC while working out -- but it shouldn't be too hard to meet or beat the SQ of the Galaxy SII headphone amp.
I have to admit to being partial to IOS devices for this kind of application, but I'm no stranger to Android devices either.
What do you folks think? Could I get a Touch 5G 32GB and achieve what I consider to be workable SQ with a LOD when necessary? Or what about a Nexus 7 tablet with an E7 or E17?
