Sorry if this has been posted before, but I couldn't find it.

It's a "Pocket Vaio" from Sony (Japan only right now). It's a little bigger and heavier than the iPod, and quite expensive (20 GB, about $ 480), but it has a color lcd, better battery life and a nifty trackpad sorta thing. Of course it doesn't play AAC files (let alone DRMed ones) and doesn't come with Mac software...

Looks good... but is the software as user friendly?? Is it as reliable?? Is it as shock proof? and what crappy software does it uses on the PC??

Nah... i'll stick with the iPod

It's not that hard to find any pictures of the PSP (platstation portable), especially after this week since it's E3. It looks very similar to the tapwave, if anyone has seen that. Basically a palm turned on it's side, with a slightly wider screen than a palm would have. It does look pretty slick.
