And, on ebay, you can find some really inexpensive ones -- I think the last one 
I bought (as a spare, haven't used it yet) was less than $5 (but a long 
delivery time from the far east).

Some have built in memory (I'm using one with 1 GB built in), more modern 
(cheap) ones use SD cards (or at least, the one I bought does).  And the cheap 
ones don't have speakers -- they expect you to use headphones or ear thingies.

Pay attention to batteries, some have them built-in (typically rechargable, 
but not (easily) replaceable).
