Topic # 85873 27-Jun-2011 16:31 Send private message

Any suggestions for a small (smaller the better) handset that can listen to streaming 96kb/s MP3 Audio?  Streaming AAC+ support would be a huge plus too, but not 100% necessary.  Oh and ability to plug in standard audio 3.5mm headset.

Couldn't care less which carrier.  Don't care for touch screen or anything.  Don't care if it can/can't make phonecalls. Don't care about texting. Don't want Bluetooth, Wifi, HSPA etc.  Just enough 3G grunt to do 96kbps audio.

AND CHEAP! (of course)

Basically a Mobile Radio.  Does such a thing exist?

Many thanks!

Why would you want to stream it? youd have to have a huge data plan...

Didn't mean to get emotional, just sick of people asking questions only to have 20 people all pile on going "Why would you want to do that?" "What a stupid/silly/dumb idea" etc.

N95 is a viable option, but I was after something quite a bit smaller.  I actually have an old SonyEricsson P1i, but it doesn't have a proper headphone jack.

Cheers,
muppet

Im not sure how much the alternatives are, so im not sure if this is a cheap option, but the vodafone 845 (android 2.1) will do what you want and can be had for ~$150 new, or much less 2nd hand on tradme

I think we might have a winner! This looks awesome, exactly what I was after. Thanks!

If anyone else has anymore suggestions, please do make them though :)

Likewise the ideos U8150 is small, cheap and cheerful and can be had secondhand for under $150
