Per my earlier comment, I have been testing with Bluetooth instead of headphone jack all week (by connecting to Blackberry Bluetooth Audio Gateway, then connecting my headphones to that). Good news: Absolutely no skips or hesitation whatsoever! It actually makes listening to the music player enjoyable again. I can multi-task, browse the web, do damn near anything I want on the phone while listening to music with no impact. I wanted several solid days of good performance before I reported. Bad News: Bluetooth connectivity gets lost after a couple of hours. It will just disconnect all on it's own and I have to stop and restart Bluetooth on the phone to get it to reconnect. This weekend I will have a complete report with video demo. I want to get a set of Bluetooth headphones to try out as well.
