Archos players

The archos 605 wifi.It has 4GB with expansion, 30GB, 80GB, or 160GB of space, which is actually better than the Q5W. I believe the 160GB model is about $500. The 4GB is about $200-$250, and the 30GB is about $325. It does cost an extra $45 for the web browser, but it is good. It has flash 9 for videos and animations and you get access to tons of free widgets, and they can give it the ability to make notes, among other things. You can also get a plugin that gives you internet radio and internet tv. It is great for video with the same resolution. (800 by 480) It is smaller, and has a 4.3 inch screen. (touch, with stylus or finger) Try checking the Cnet review for both this and the Cowon. You can also consider the monstrous 705 wifi, which is similar to the 605, but with a bigger screen, USB host, and louder speakers. Hope this helps. Happy

There is the Touch 32Gb.

As sheep-like that choice may be, I have to say it is a very compelling machine for all-round casual use. There's the App Store, and all the features you mentioned are covered.

32Gb is enough space for a decent amount of music + video. And if you wait - maybe Apple with come out with a 64 Gigger this Christmas.
