    Not that I can read Japanese, but it looks like a navigation unit with a camera. I agree it's really slick looking, but it's not an iPod competitor.

    side note: go to the linked page above and check out the Disney looking gadget ... not sure what it does

    couldnt they also run into some problems because im pretty sure theres a verizon phone called the enV, so that could be bad for iriver. besides it looks ridiculous too

    I'm pretty much 99.9% set on an ipod, I'm just waiting for the new ones. Which is taking an intolerable amount of time. I suppose due to the release of the iphone.

    Soooooooo....I think I'm gonna drop the ball for now and get a new LCD monitor and just start re-saving for the ipod. :cool:

    It looks nice, but is pretty large (7" screen). And the knob adds to the sizes and makes it thicker too (unless there is some way to retract it).

    iRiver and i-Bead are the only MP3 players I'd consider if iPod dropped the ball. Though I'm not keen on the design of that one, it seems like they just added chunks to a block.

    GPS too! But whats the drive capacity?

    reading japanese won't be able to help you since it's written in korean.

    what's with the funky knob?

    Not a big fan....seems kind of big. Not really a replacment for iPod, plus the design itself isn't too hot IMO

    If iPods dissappered tomorrow, and all my music was in Mp3(because basicly every player support its) I'd get an Archos player...they seem to have nice features.

    LOL.... Love the Japanese comment :cool:

    I also agree with the knob issue, it seems it could have been smaller or designed better.

    But I do have to admit it does have a very sleek look to it.
