Product Shot 1 The Pros:Plenty of features all in one unit, very few things missing. Bluetooth calls work well, built-in mic gathers great sound. Touchscreen interface is easy to use, well laid out.

The Cons:Browsing tracks on the iPod is a little awkward. Doesn't store contacts with Bluetooth connections. SD card reader can't read larger than 2Gb cards, won't read SDHC.
