It makes me sad that the Nokia 3300 never took off or was very promoted by Nokia/the mobile carriers.  I got mine on eBay for about $35 + shipping because I needed a new phone with a keyboard on it, my previous one having died suddenly.  I was impressed at how well the music player did mp3s and FM radio, and how the headset worked with it, answering an incoming call and stopping the music you are listening to all in one button press, with the phone in a pocket.  Much like how the "bump" on the iPhone headset/earphones works.  Plus, there's a Gig of memory which is not bad for early 2005.

And, I just drop the mp3s onto it via the filesystem, rather than requiring iTunes or something similar.  But maybe that's what people want.  I suppose a rhapsody-based model might be around the corner.
