the two big items on my christmas wish list are a PDA and a portable digital MP3 player. when i found out that some PDAs can play back MP3s, it sounded like a good deal to combine the two. my question is... does the MP3 playback have the same quality as a digital MP3 player? sound quality is important to me and if i need to buy an MP3 player to get quality playback i probably will.

With headphones, I would think so. Without headphones, the PDA speakers are generally crap.

I have an older Sony (PalmOS 4) which plays MP3s just fine through the headphones. The quality is substantially similar to that from my Nomad MG. But then, I am not an audiophile, I use headphones which admit a lot of ambient noise, and use 96K files for the PDA (I wouldn't be able to appreciate the quality what with the noise, and the lower bitrate means I can fit more songs on one MS). Your mileage may vary.

They are great. I have a Dell Axim that I was able to get a ton of songs on. If you have the right cable you can hook it up to your stero and it sound just like anything else would on a stero.
