The Sony NW-A808 is the most stunning flash MP3 player we've seen since the iPod nano — if anything, it's better in many significant areas. It's one of the only MP3 players around to make music sound great out of the box — plus video clips look lush and the battery life is superb.
The only drawbacks are the SonicStage software, as ever, and the relatively high recommended price. You'll have to learn to live with the awkward software, but the nice people at Advanced MP3 Players tell us they're planning to sell the NW-A808 for less than the price of a nano — if this happens, it's well worth snapping up.
