Summary: I will say that is a great mp3 player/phone w/ out being able to dial out. It comes with many features. Having it connect to the android market is great. The only issue is that the mp3 player has a tendency to short if dropped once or twice which causes a weird glitch where the screen moves. But if you haven't dropped it no worries great product.
Great little mp3 player that does everything I want it to

Summary: I have enjoyed using the gogear Ariaz. I had previously owned a gogear vibe from Philips, it had lasted me 3 years as opposed to only 1 (if that) from most other brands I had used. So hoping this one lasts me just as long, if not longer. It's nice and stylish, and I love the built-in speaker too. The simple navigation layout makes it lovely to use, as well as the compatibility with many music file types makes it better than other brands.
Summary: Pretty nice for the money .has nice features . Wifi and great apps availible. Heads up cases r very hard to find . I may get a silacone ipod case it won't fit all the fearures but should cover phone.
Summary: For those of you who are like myself and think Apple is way overpriced and overrated, Philips has finally given us an alternative to the iPod Touch. While I cannot directly compare the two items, I can say that I am well pleased with the functionality of this product. Would have given it 5 stars if it had a built in camera, but overall this product is worth the money.
Good reasonably priced mp3 player, avoid the software

Summary: The Philips GoGear Ariaz is an attractive player for a more reasonable price than other similar options. It has a very attractive design and a reasonably large hard drive. It also supports high-quality audio like FLAC and charges quickly. The main issue with this player is the software that is packaged with it. The Songbird software is enormous, slow, and poorly designed. Avoid it if you can and use Windows Media Player or another similar software instead.
My GoGear Ariaz and my iPod both have a place in my life

Summary: Okay so first off I wasn't happy about installing yet another music managing program on my computer. I already have one for my phone, my iPod, Amazon Mp3 and now this, but of course I made room and set it up as instructed. What I like about the GoGear Ariaz: * Small and compact when compared to my older 5th Gen Video iPod. * The brushed stainless steel body feels pretty solid. * FM Radio!
Summary: My trusty old Sansa Clip mp3 player is getting old and I was looking for something modern with larger capacity to replace it. I'm not a big fan of Apple products and wanted a good Apple alternative. The Philips Ariaz looked nice and had support for the popular FLAC lossless music format that has become popular amongst PC and Linux audiophiles. So I thought I'd give it a shot. The Ariaz is quite small and looks nice with its brushed gun metal finish.
