3 iPod Touch Alternatives – Sony Walkman vs. Cowon Plenue D vs. Pioneer

Updated: January 17, 2017 / Home » Computer PC Hardware

Are you sick and tired of having the same mp3 player as your friend? What are the other alternatives to Apple iPod Touch mp3 player? At the time of writing, Microsoft Zune HD has been discontinued at the end of 2011, it is being replaced by Windows Phone. As for SanDisk, they do not make any touch screen mp3 players. Given a choice, I’ll choose Sony or Apple, Sony for the simple reason that they are into audio technology, and not to mention the build quality, which is very reliable. I had a Sony CD Burner that I used for 6 years, it out-survived my computer. Same goes with my other Sony products.

As for Apple, it is because of the apps. The only reason I won’t choose the Apple iPod Touch is because of the lack of FM Radio. I am not a big fan of Samsung, I had 2 CD player and it broke after 1 year, same goes with my other 2 Samsung monitor. It is as if they engineered their product to fail after the warranty period expires. Amazon has a complete list of all Touch Screen MP3 Players, however, a large number of them are sold my 3rd party or are listed under ‘used and new’ such as iRiver, Coby, Cowon and etc.. Currently, there are only 2 big brands that manufacture touch screen mp3 players with HD audio, they are Sony and Pioneer. Note: Music Players such as Philips GoGear, Samsung Galaxy Player and Creative Zen X-Fi2 are still available, but hasn’t been updated since 2009.

    There are tons of alternatives, except none match up to the iOS of the ipod touch.

    Apple’s iPod Touch is the leader, but what about some alternatives for the Android fans?

    Today there are a number of alternatives. The iPod touch still offers more bang for your buck than most competitors

    Most “ipod touch” like android devices other then then the Samsung Galaxy Player series tend to unfortunately be poorly made, and laggy

    None of these are “alternatives” to the iPod Touch. The 2 Samsung devices are YEARS old and discontinued. The Phillips “Go Gear” doesn’t even have a screen. The Sony devices would only qualify as alternatives to an Ipod… you know, just a regular old MP3 player… and then you actually listed the iPod Touch as an “alternative” to an iPod Touch. Is this a joke?

    The ONLY device that even qualifies to be on this list is the Creative
    Zen X-Fi2… which hasn’t been updated since 2009.

    WHY IS THIS THE FIRST GOOGLE RESULT FOR “IPOD TOUCH ALTERNATIVES”? THIS A F SCAM AND GOOGLE NEEDS TO BE SUED FOR SERVING UP SUCH OBVIOUS MISINFORMATION POSING AS RELEVANT SEARCH RESULTS.
