Re: Are smart phones making MP3 players obsolete?
For the most part yes. With blue tooth technology soon (if not already) you will be able to have you iphone in your pocket and play music throughout the house. I am sure the technology will advance to the point where you can play music and talk on the phone at the same time, if not already.
The one caveat is the gym. I have an ipod shuffle and will continue to have an iphone shuffle as long as I am going to the gym and running. I don't feel like carrying a bulky iphone when I am running and opt for a light device.
