Bleh.
Its a piece of hardware that slips on top of the existing iPod form and retails from $199 upwards.....

If this were a piece of software then that would be fine, but this is an additional piece of hardware....

It's pretty missleading saying it's HD when it's actually VGA...

On a related topic, how come Apple's 480p HD Movie Trailers are considered HD?

reading the articles i can see that the current iSee360 is indeed VGA, BUT, I can not find the screen res mentioned for tha announced Hi def versioon, so maybe it WILL be HD. difficult to condemn it if we haven't got the proper specs available.

Mmm, being an owner of a 60Gb Photo iPod, it could interest me - seriously.

It would still be less expensive than a new iPod of the same capacity, with a better video resolution. Or than buying the not-confirmed-yet future full-screen video iPod.

However, it is indeed very expensive for what it does. And I agree that the "HD" reference is misleading.
