"Boasting a 4.8-inch resistive touchscreen (800 x 480 resolution), a Windows CE 6.0 underlying OS, HDMI / USB sockets (via adapters from a proprietary socket), a voice recorder, integrated speaker, 3.5mm headphone jack, 8/16/32GB of internal storage, an SDHC expansion slot, a battery good for 45 hours of music playback (or 10 hours with video) and a format support list that would drive you batty to read, there's a lot (lot!) to love about this thing on paper."
With a starting price of $299, it seems a bit steep for a device that is only a media player. I'm actually hoping that the Dell Mini 5 comes in around this price given the iPad's $499 price tag. Alternatively, given the underlying OS base, a web browser is possible, and combined with a bit of a price cut could give this some traction.
