    Does anyone know of a voice recorder that is compatible with the Video iPod? And if so, can the recorder take advantage of the Video iPod's significantly improved recording sampling rate?

    what recording options are there for the v ipod? I'm pretty sure that there isn't a linux port out yet, and the belkin recorder sounds terrible so...

    Griffin is coming out with a new iFM. And I'm sure they and Belkin will have new ones. Maybe Apple will come out with one since they did away with the old connector.

    Oh yeah. I just realized that. They did get rid of that special expansion thingy. Hmmmm... I wonder what Apple and the other manufacturers have up there sleeve.

    Also note that the "Voice Memos" section under extras is no longer listed, as it was on previous ipods.

    They didn't. But they had a connector on top for such devices. They did away with that for the video iPods, but Griffin and Belkin are working on new devices for the dock port that remains. I just thought maybe Apple might be working on one of their own. Shame that the recording is higher quality now, but there's nothing to take advantage of it.

    And the recording quality on the Griffin iTalk recorder for my fourth gen iPod is OUTSTANDING.

    Personally I think Macworld's going to yield something interesting from someone (and my guess is Apple) for a 5G recorder. Adam Curry had a quote a while back that Apple had told him their next iPods would have excellent podcast recording, and Apple didn't add the great recording quality to the new ones for no reason. If there's a podcasting app in the next iLife iteration I can definitely see the tie-in too.
