PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
Other than the previously mentioned battery compartment,
the bottom also houses the USB connection for the computer interface.

case. This one small yet important addition should be definitely on
your list of features for your next MP3 player. This model's included
case protects your investment from spills, rain, dirty fingers (we all
like to change tracks while eating a Big Mac) and the usual scrapes
and bumps associated with carrying this player in a lady's purse or
a gentleman's book or locker bag. Also, for people on the go, the back
of the case also includes a belt clasp which will free your hands up
for doing a workout or carrying a water bottle during a run.
