I'm looking to upgrade from my 1st generation Ipod Mini 6GB and I would prefer not to get another Ipod due to compatibility issues I have had with them, and its limited codec capability and feature set. I have £150 ($250-$300 USD) to spend.

I've been looking at the Meizu m6:

MEIZU M6 8 GB MP3 MINI IN BLACK review cheap prices M6 8 GB MP3 MINI IN BLACK MEIZU best buy discount online uk shop

It looks good from what I can tell, but would you guys advise something else?

Things I'm looking for in order of preference:
  1. Good Sound for my Sennheisers
  2. MP3, Ogg, WMA codec support
  3. At least basic data transfer support for linux
  4. At least 4GB of memory - 6GB+ would be preferable
  5. Good battery life (at least 10+ hours audio)
  6. Maybe some video with dvix, xvid, WMV support
  7. Maybe a radio tuner with FM and/or DBA support.
  8. Bluetooth v.1337.8 to fire mah WMDs from the comfort of my living room.


ummm, I didn't mean for that link to look like an advertisement, it seems the board does it automatically.

Maybe samsung p2 ?, don't know about linux support. Or maybe sony 6xx or 8xx series with a bluetooth dongle- no ogg but crackin good sound
Oh, the last line was an little pun, didn't catch that first read

X2 on the Cowon D2 recommendation. Awesome player, with lots of room for expandability, thanks to its SDHC slot. 52 hours of audio or 10 hours of video on a single battery charge certainly doesn't hurt either!
