So, maybe it's just me, but I have never seen anybody use their mp3-enabled cellphone as an MP3/MP4 player (with the exception of the iPhone).

I really don't think this 'music-phone' dealio will catch on until they start putting hard drives and decent GUIs into phones (again, like the iPhone).

NOTE: No I do not have an iPhone, I have a LG Venus (Verizon).
