Are the old "pen knife" style mp3 players still available and cheap?

Only ones I could see were at Argos and have tripled in price!

I was wanting a pen knife style one as I never use MP4 funcions and have had quite a few fakes from China so they are a waste of money as either the memory corrupts or the headphone socket breaks.

So I have been without a MP3 player for about 2 years now.

I dont want to pay more for a feature I dont use, I am fine with a lcd screen just saying name of track so I dont have to guess, and ideally has a menu feature(which may defeat the purpose of a pen knife style one)

Other reason is that I can change the battery easy if I get a pen knife style one if run out when on the train or something instead of having to wait for hours till I get home(and have had the Chinese ones with batteries that last 10 minutes)

sorry mate, don't know. How about just using your phone and buy more memory/another battery for it?

I'm pretty sure I seen some in the Argos catalog, could just be the mp4 in that older style but still worth a look

It's an mp3 player, if it plays songs it can't be bad, it doesn't need to do much else, anyway my friend had one and it worked fine.

manager at the sony centre i work for says there a pile of carp, back falls off them and they have pretty minimal storage
