Music on My Treo 650

Yeah, I carry music, and alot of it on my Treo. At the risk of dating myself by listing some of the music I have on my Treo at this moment… I’ll forge ahead.

I use the RealPlayer that comes factory-installed in the Treo 650 as my player. I used PTunes when I had the Treo 600, and liked it enough to upgrade to the “bells and whistles” edition.

I find that, until my video player offers background play as an option, the RealPlayer does a fine job with a simple interface.Below is a list of the artists I have in my music collection on the Treo 650 at the moment. Some artists only rated one song, others got an album, so the listing of an artist isn’t an indication of the number of songs. I’m running just over 600 megs of music on my expansion card.

But, this means that no matter where I am or what I’m doing, I can have stereo quality sound while I’m away. I even turn on my Treo and listen to music while its in the cradle here on my desk sometimes — but the sound quality suffers when the tiny speaker is used instead of the stereo headphones.
