Ok, I'm wanting a player cheaper than the Nano, preferably no more than $100. It needs to be at least 8GB of storage. It doesn't matter if it has video playback or a radio. Was does matter is podcast playback capabilities with bookmarking, also audiobook/audible compatibility. I have an iPod Touch and a video capable smart phone, so video isnt an issue. I used my Nano mainly for music and podcasts/audiobooks. I'd prefer nothing tiny though, or small controls/screens (like the SanDisk Sansa clip or Creative Zen V plus), though if they're the best deal I'll go with one. I'm thinking of maybe the Creative Zen X-Fi Style 16GB, but unsure. I dont want the new iPod Nano, it's too small,I dont like the style, plus it costs too much. I need a player with a screen though, so no to a Shuffle or the like.
So, what Im looking for:
Less then or equal to $100
at least 8GB
Podcast/audiobook support with bookmarking (remember position)
Preferably no tiny form factor/controls/screen
