Almost everybody has an MP3 player these days, and I could say that a considerable percentage of those people have iPods.  I have never been a fan of MP3 players.  Iím not really against them; itís just the fact of owning one.  Iím not an outgoing person.  I go out but Iím not usually in places where I would find myself thinking, it would be great if I have a portable player with me right now.  My car doesnít have a CD player.  The FM tuner tuned in one (rock!) station is good enough for me.  I do have my fair collection of CDís and MP3ís.  Quite few actually, since Iím really picky as to the songs I want to keep on my collection.

So why do I have an MP3 player now?  Iíve been going to the gym lately and the in-house music is usually playing pop or hip-hop.  At first I wanted to get a cheapo radio just to get by.  But YucA from the forums directed me to a site showing the mobiBLU DAH-1500i.  Itís a very small MP3 player in a cube casing.  It measures about an inch on all sides, making it really small compared to players during that time.  I like very small things, especially if they are functional.  Iíve always been fascinated with miniatures that work how they should.  I saw a small vice grip before, probably about 4 inches long and I wanted one just because it was smaller than usual.  Anyway, the DAH-1500i, despite its size, can hold a max of 1GB.  By then I thought this would be the MP3 player I would finally get myself.

Not long after that, the iPod nano came out.  Again, I was fascinated about its size.  I was never really a fan of Apple products, most especially the iPod, since itís rather expensive for what itís for.  But, the nano was small, and it also came in black, my color of choice.  I got torn between that and the DAH-1500i.  With Christmas being just a few weeks away, the nano was a great gift choice for my wife.  So, I guess I got the satisfaction of buying a nano, even though itís not for me.  Iíve decided to buy myself the DAH-1500i since its features won me over than what the nano offered.

You might be thinking what was that long story about, and why am I stupid not getting the nano?  I donít think Iím stupid for not getting an iPod.  Itís like saying Iím stupid for choosing nVidia, or for using IE. Anyway, this is my chance to show what the mobiBLU DAH-1500i has to offer, what it can do or how it performs, in case some people are planning on getting one.
