Am I getting this right?

Can I use the Samsung Blackjack as my mp3/video player? I’m considering getting a new Samsung Blackjack as a mp3 player for commuting/general travel. I can get it for 75 bucks from cingular and apparently a 2gb microsd card is only about 30
so I can have a nice
fully featured mp3 player/organizer/nice new phone for 100 dollars. My question to the askmefi audience is if there’s a potential downside I’m missing here. Does anyone have experience with the blackjack? Is the audio output good enough for semi-regular mp3 usage? Will I be able to install some sort of codec package to play my downloaded tv shows? I think it uses Windows Mobile 5
so are there any equivalents of vlc media player for WM5? I guess general impressions are welcome too. I’ve read the cnet review
and they seemed largely impressed
with the only potential downside in that there’s no wi-fi (hey – I’d love to skip this question and go for an iphone – but I don’t have 500 bucks to spare). Thanks all.

Can I get a swanky Vegas gambling experience – but with low limits?

I’m currently staying in Las Vegas and it seems silly not to have a go at playing some roulette and maybe some blackjack. The GF would like to try playing some slots. Where can we go on the mid-strip which is suitably classy but at the same time has low limits? We’re currently staying at the Mirage and whilst their casino looks nice
the limits seem to be $10+. Considering that I’m only budgeting $100
this isn’t going to get me very far. As such
I’d like any recommendations on places on the strip which: 1. Are swanky (so we at least have a decent Vegas experience) 2. Have low limit slots (to keep the GF happy) 3. Have low limit roulette and blackjack (say $2-$5) so that I can at least place more than 10 bets. 4. Are on the strip and ideally not too far away from the Mirage (as it’ll probably be the last thing we do before going back to the hotel). I don’t plan to make an evening of it as our itinerary is pretty booked up
so maybe only an hour. Many thanks!
