BoomGear MP820BT Bluetooth MP3 player

It's not out yet, but a new Bluetooth MP3 player with 256MB of storage, the Boomgear MP820BT, has turned up on Amazon. Can you use it with wireless headphones? Nope. And you can't use it to wirelessly swap tunes with other players, either. Instead the Bluetooth in the BoomGear is meant to be used with a Bluetooth-enabled cellphone, so you can listen to music on it and then when your phone rings the music is automatically paused so you can take the call, using your (wired) headphones and the player's built-in microphone as a makeshift cellphone headset. But you can use the MP820BT's Bluetooth for wirelessly transfering music from a Bluetooth-enabled computer, so it's not all bad.
