    Looks intersting. Dread to think how much it'll cost though.

    blipped4, this hasn't been released yet, and the price hasn't been announced. You are probably talking about a different device, but most likely you are just lying.

    Archos have released hard disk multimedia players before, they generally had tiny screens ~2" in size though.

    I have seen this on one of the shopping channels too around Christmas time. I think that they were claiming that it was an exclusive, but I am not 100% sure about that bit.
    I can tell you honestly that Blipped is not telling porkies! Although I don't agree with what he says most of the time, I also saw this gadget on TV.
    And I do recall the price being around £1k -- it did look a smart, arbeit expensive bit of kit.

    Blipped4, I believe you that there has been previous players, but this one hasn't been released. It won't have been on QVC. I was just playing with you anyway. Stop taking things so seriously. I apologise if you took offense.

    The difference between this and other players is that this runs on linux. Using the same GUI that the Zaurus handlhelds used; Qtopia.

    is cool, but I agree that the price will probably be up there in the clouds. :(
