    I'm tired of carrying around two devices and to be honest I could really use some extra pocket cash.

    I am thinking about selling my iPods. I have an 8gb touch and a 16gb touch. Before I try to sell them though I wanted to know if anyone else used their Droid in place of an iPod or any other mp3 player.

    Some questions or concerns I had about using my Droid for everything (phone, data, music, movies, games, etc.) were: Sound quality, battery drain, movie quality, lag when using music or movie player, taking calls or sms during music. Or anything else you guys can think of.

    I guess what I'm asking is what you guys thought about using the Droid as a main music player?

    gave my iPod touch to my brother on Nov 6th, 2009; Pandora works as a fantasic replacement to my random function. In addition to that, the music player (Although somewhat skimplistic) works for my needs 1/40 usage time. Android is improving. Give 5 Months till a killer music app.

    I am also waiting for the 32 gb micro sd. I can easily fill up 16gigs with music alone.

    Indeed, this sucks for 16 gb. In my day we could only ask the computah yes or no questions.

    I'm a pack rat when it comes to electronics, I really just enjoy hanging on to the stuff, even if I don't really have much use for it. I still prefer my ipod touch for music, but will use my droid for movies.

    I have movies and music on my droid and use it 99% of the time. I like the Ipod touch UI better but in time I am sure there will be something nice for the droid out. I will continue to use Ipod touch for my Ford as it "Syncs" up and has a better interface than the droid does.

    I still carry my iPod with me when I travel. However, I do also have my music on my Droid and could use that instead if I wanted to.

    As far as movies, I bought an app called Act 1 Movie player and it does very well and is worth the money. I wasn't too thrilled with playing movies from the Gallery.

    Love my ipod touch

    I really loved my ipod touch but now that I have the droid I have ver little reason to carry it anymore. I usually use it at home for listening to Pandora on home stero.
