Philips GoGear SA2840/02 - 4GB

 

This Philips GoGear mp3 player uses a familiar control system and won't break the bank.

The second reason that the clickable screen is such a fine concept is that it allows the manufacturer to make the most of the space available, and on a small player such as the GoGear SA2840 that's a crucial factor. It should allow the screen to occupy...

Start up delay

Simple, large memory

Itunes is too slow, small screen
