    It seems that the other thing the Slacker G2 has is that it has free music on the player too. I’m not if the $50 difference (or whatever it is) between the Nano and the Slacker sorts out straight away but getting free music on a portable seems like a good option.

    One thing to keep in mind when comparing these is that you never have to pay for music with the Slacker G2. With an iPod, you need more storage because all you are doing is storing songs that you purchased or ripped from CDs. With Slacker, you don’t need as much storage because you are just playing radio stations that are either programmed by their music experts or that you created on your own. So, it’s not really oranges to oranges if you consider that you never have to buy a single song with the Slacker G2. Add in the cost of music and time with an iPod and I think it’s quite a bit more expensive than the Slacker player.

    I recently purchased the Slacker G2 and couldn’t be happier. I haven’t touched my MP3 player since and don’t think I ever will again.

  3. Good points, Fred & Justin, I have a SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player I picked up for under $40 with 37 songs I got from Amazon for $.99 per song ($36.63), so I completely missed the free music deal from Slacker. Don’t you have to join/pay to download from Slacker.com onto the G2?

    It would be nice to be fair to iPod lovers to have someone chime in with how much iTunes cost for iPods.
