boy - i hope the person you spoke to was just ill-informed. Otherwise, that is just sad. Anyone who's ever used an iphone 3gs while running knows exactly what I'm talking about. You can't change the song while you're moving without in-line controls, and no android device seems to suppor the three-button, volume up, volume down, one click for pause. two clicks for skip forward, three clicks for skip backward functionality. In its absence, I simply cannot recommend any android over an iphone. My $0.02.
