    Store or stream? Combination of both?

    I'll probably transfer some of my music to the SD card but I'm mostly going to stream it. Pandora seems to always know what's on my mind or what I like. I also got an mSpot beta invite courtesy of Phandroid so I'll sync my iTunes to my mSpot account and stream it. mSpot is really great. If anyone has else is in the mSpot beta take their survey, they'll give you an extra 2 gigs of space making it a total of 4 gigs for free.

    SD Card and maybe Pandora. Mostly SD though after I get my hands on a legit 32GB version.

    I'm going to stream via the Ampache App.
    I set up the music server to use for my Pre. Luckily the app also exist on Android.

    I mostly play music through my ipod thats in my car. It was a free 60gb classic that I leave plugged into the Aux input.

    When not in the car ill likely use the FM radio or Pandora, mostly.

    SD, but only maybe 2GB worth. I have an iPod touch that I really do like, so not sure how that's going to fit into my mobile music needs.

    I've got a few sites that I want to stream. Everything else is going local.

    Same here. I don't think I'm going to be loading like over 2000 songs for my EVO lol. I'm putting music on the device here and there....no doubt. But I'm happy with my Zune player.

    I used to store music on my phones but lately I just stream shoutcast stations. I might load it up when I have a road trip but then I just drag audiobooks and music to a music folder on the phone's storage or SD.

    I have well over 100GB of music so I'm pretty much forced to stream. I'll probably put together a DIY NAS/home server in the near future and run Subsonic on it. I have it installed on one of my home machines and it works great with my iPhone, but I don't want to leave a large, dual core machine on 24/7 just for music.

    FM radio or Pandora, but my ipod touch is my media horse. The evo will make movies on the go better however.

    Load all the music I can on the SD Card
    Stream the rest of my library through Subsonic
    Play music that isn't in my library through Grooveshark
    Explore new music with Pandora and last.fm

    I'm probably going to keep my iPods for music. I have far more music than a 16GB card can handle and years of iPod accessories. I will only have few small playlists of music on my Evo and will use it as a listening device only when I'm not carrying my iPods (when listening isn't a top priority).

    I'm still unsure how the Evo/Android combo will work with headphones with inline mics either so until I own a great headset that's 100% Android-compatible, I'll let time sort this out.

    I'm probably just going to load a bunch of movies onto the SD card and keep an iPod around for music. Mostly cause I don't really listen to music on the go unless it's a really long car trip/airplane or if I'm at home

    I'll load music on 16gb SD card and replace carrying my ipod around when going on business trips and what not. I have an Alpine head-unit in my car that I typically leave my Ipod connected to. Hopefully one day I can connect my Evo to an Alpine head-unit and get a similar user experience the ipod connection currently does. Until then I'll be forced to update two devices, but at least I'll only have to carry one device with me when I travel.
