    Top right: is that a port like on the gp32 or is it the SD slot? (I've never used SD before)

    Looks like its on the bottom, so its a port?

    That would be nifty, I wanted a port on it :)

    There's USB host exactly the same as the GP32, ie. it's not powered.

    Same hear, for surfing the web, email, chating, and multi-player games. I would much rather have that then the extra 32mb of ram.

    It is a possiblity IF your hardrive is not powered over usb, so if you have a giant brick then maybe. Someone would have to write a program to do so, or there be a hack or something. But really whats the point that really kills the portability, maybe if you could use a flash drive it would make more sense.

    Of course its easy to make a battery powered usb 'extender' ie. a male usb port to female usb port with added power from a battery pack (9v battery, a few AA's....)

    gp32_console <---{battery}---< <[usb thumb drive]

    Ya and then for where the usb thumbdrive is it is a usb wifi drive.

    gp32_console <---{battery}---< <[usb wifi thumb drive]

    Then it is already running linux so you make a browser then poof internet.

    the archos gmini XS 202 is really small and i dont think it needs a powered usb port so...... Is could be great for exemple while in the train .... or if you take holydays and dont have a computer ....

    The USB socket is powered, not sure what voltage but I think it's around 5v. if you plugged in a battery to the socket, it would feed directly back into the unit and any power the unit doesn't need can also charge the internal batteries.
