This year's nominations for the 2005 Pocket-lint.co.uk awards for BEST MP3 Player are:


The iPod nano

Could this be the iPod killer everyone has been waiting for? Most definitely

The Sony NW-HD5
If you haven't been bitten by the iPod bug, this is the one to have

The iriver H10
A feature rich player that will give the competition a run for its money

The iPod Shuffle
At half the price of the competition and with twice the memory this new device will be a force to be reckoned with

The Creative Zen Micro Photo
Creative adds photo capabilities to its great little MP3 player making it a worthy competitor to the iPod nano and iriver H10.

The awards will be held on the 1 December 2005 and include any product that has been launched in the UK since the 1 December 2004.

There are 13 categories including the Pocket-lint Readers Award sponsored by Vodafone where you will have your say rather than the judges on the best gadget from all the nominations of 2005.

Voting for the gadget of the year will start on 1 November 2005 and finish on 30 November 2005.


Come back at 7am to see the nominations for the Best Media Player 2005.
