Default Goodbye iPod

Please Login to Remove!

Well, after a couple of weeks of using the 8900 and using the media sync with iTunes, I am now ready to pretty much give up my iPods. Since I was not really able to sync my playlists as well in the past, the new sync works so well that I now carry my playlist and ready to stop carrying 2 devices.

Well, I got a iPod Classic with 80 GB, which always stays at home and is connected to my Harman Kardon AVR 247 and my Jamo speakers. I got another iPod Shuffle which I take with my when I go and do some sports. My 8900 is always in my pocket with some headphones, and I use it when I got the time and I need to wait somewhere or something like that.

Syncing is easy, thanks RIM + Apple.

Regards,
Nils

Pair the 8900 with the Motorola S9 bluetooth headphones and it'll be even better than an iPod!

I have a question: I'll install Media Mgr from the cd that comes with the phone. Then connect the phone and open Device Mgr I assume. Then how do I synch just the playlists I want from iTunes. I don't want all of them. And can I also synch albums? I assume that I change my media card status to mass media off? I don't have my big card yet so I'm taking all this in ahead of time, thanks.

Wirelessly posted (8900)

You can select which playlists you want. You can't select albums or artists unless you make playlists for them.

I agree with OP but only reason I am reluctant to give up the ipod is because of 8900 battery life. If I want to listen to it to during commute and use the berryt heavily throughout the day, I am on blinking red battery before end of day.

Would love to get rid of the ipod if the battery life improves.

I never intended to use the 8900 as a music player but its so convenient to load a few playlists on it.

I have had the blackberry 8900 for just over a month now and my ipod has been demoted to gym-only use.

I do agree. If I do take a long trip, I will bring the 30GB classic I have. Otherwise, its converged.

I HATE the fact that the iPod still does NOT have A2DP. Matter of fact, none of the portable phone/devices from Apple does.

OS limit is 32GB but the current largest micro-SDHC card being produced is 16GB
