    I have the Droid and I have import all of my music onto it. I like to work out and run a lot. Would this constant bouncing motion of running be bad for the device in the long run?

    Certainly any motion over long periods of time will cause wear and tear on parts just as they do on joints in your body. However, you're not looking at nasty side effects like corrupted files etc...as everything is in flash which is far less susceptible to shock as the mini-hard drives in the original IPod's. The DROID should be able to take it just like any current MP3 player would.

    On that note, anyone seen an armband for this thing yet?

    Running with your Droid seems like a very heavy device to workout with. Why not just grab a smaller mp3 player. You also don't risk the chance of dropping your Droid.

    I workout with my droid everyday! No problems, and shouldn't be any! It's a music player.
