"Several companies are following in the footsteps of Microsoft's Zune, and coming out with their own versions of Wi-Fi equipped digital audio players. Among those jumping on the wi-fi bandwagon are Sandisk, iRiver, Archos, Polaroid, and AOL. Sandisk's $250 Sansa Connect device will work with a service called Zing to allow users to share music, stream internet radio, and download tracks."
Not only are a number of DAP manufacturers adding WiFi to upcoming devices, but many are trying to pick up where Microsoft dropped the ball by adding many of the features the Zune community has been asking for. Microsoft better be careful to not drag their feet too long on Zune improvements or future models, or their Social might just be surpassed.
