    Because my entire library is already indexed in WMP and it works with every other device I have.

    You guys have been hypnotized by the apple devils. iPhone is an expensive version of a sidekick. The Nokia E70 is even better, and how much does it cost? About 200 $ less than the iPhone.
    But, you probably had no idea that it does more than the iPhone. Probably because it isn't hyped beyond belief due to a style-based marketing team.
    The iPod? Man, I wish i could count all the mp3 players better for CHEAPER on the market. It doesn't even compare to certain other makes, like iRiver, zune, etc. Just another overpriced pretty product by apple.

    So you guys defending either the ipod or the iphone shows just how much of your opinion is based on what product you have rather than a general perspective. Bias sucks.

    Get a grip. I've bought exactly 1 piece of hardware from Apple since 1998. If fanboys were the only ones who loved Apple's products, they wouldn't be making so much insane money. They sell so many Macs, iPods, and iPhones because they are great products. They don't suit everyone, but that doesn't make them any less great.

    Neither of them are designed the same as the iPhone at all. And neither of them are as easy to use, which is the key. No other phone can compare to some of the things than the iPhone can do. Show me how many phones can match the iPhone as either a full-screen video iPod or a full fledged web browser, much less both.

    Yes, I'm sure they can do more than the iPhone right now since both allow 3rd party apps. But not only does that not make them a better handset, but Apple has already announced an SDK for 3rd party apps.

    Cheaper? sure. Better? No. Especially when you consider that the value of a device is more than just the device itself. The things that Apple offers and the add-ons available make a huge difference.

    You'd still need to convert the WMAs to either mp3 or AAC for them to play on an iPod.

    I believe if you try and import your exisitng library into iTunes, that it will (in the Prefernces settings) give you the option of importing in mp3 format or AAC (there's even Apple Lossless)
    the iTunes store downloads are AAC
    I would just suggest all mp3's be 'ripped' in VBR for maximum quality with minimal sizage

    basically, the iPod will accept and playback all your mp3's
    the WMA's will need to be converted to at least mp3
