My suspicions exactly. When you factor in MY ears, especially. If these players had the ease of operability (for example, Android OS) to use services such as Audible, while allowing me to load my CD library (300+ books, 1400 CD's) into one (better than average) unit...then maybe I would. My point is that until these players become more flexible, I believe that "players" like the V20 or HTC 10 would be a better than fair repository for music and audiobook libraries. Bluetooth and WiFi built in, Android flexibility, large storage capacity...why reinvent the wheel?
