Tiny Spotify

I want a teeny tiny music player to take along when running. All it needs to do is do Spotify in offline mode.

Light, cheap, sweatproof and able to do wifi at home pick up the playlist. And small, very, very small.

I could be mistaken, but I don't believe your dream device exists. Offline Spotify is only available for iPhones, iPads, Android devices/phones, and WinPhones. All of those devices have touch screens to run apps, so by their very nature they're not light, cheap, or sweatproof.

this, and this Appear to be the smallest devices that could be made to support it with some cocking around. That, or an older iPod touch like the 4. There's nothing smaller I can think of that would run it. Both of those phones are smaller than the smallest windows phones, or iPhones... And smaller than any android music player.

I bought the Sony Experia emptythought linked to, because it was the smallest cheapest way I could find to get offline Spotify. It's not dirt cheap, but it's good value and I think it meets your other requirements - I tuck it into a crop top when I'm exercising, so it's sweatproof enough for that, and it's got WiFi.

Sansa Clip and Rhapsody. Light, cheap, sweatproof. BUT, no wifi, and you'll have to switch to Rhapsody.

Response by poster: Thanks all. I figured I was probably going to need to get an android/phone of some sort. I can't believe it's the only option, but there it is.

(massysett, I have the Sansa Clip now and it's a good little device. I'm more inclined to swat a device than leave my lover, Spotify.)

I don't think this is a good solution but I want to post it for completeness' sake: if you are a super nerd, and you have a freewheeling attitude towards what's "cheap", this might could be done with a rooted MOTOACTV.
