iRiver iMP-550.

iRiver have just made available a Beta firmware upgrade for any gadgetholics smart enough to have bought one of the company's iMP-550 portable audio players (which is the world's slimmest, at 13.7mm). Already capable of playing MP3 and WMA, and with an integral FM tuner, once you download and install the firmware upgrade, the iMP-550 CD player will also be able to cope with the new audio compression format, Ogg Vorbis. The guys who run Vorbis claim that it "sounds better than MP3." So with the iMP-550, you get the best of both worlds. All worlds, sorry.
