The neuros platform would be adequate once all the company BS is resolved.
Not great - too bulky and non-replaceable battery - but OK. The one major
problem I see is that it is not currently commonly available from retailers.
(I'm assuming this is still true, I haven't checked.) That is one of my
requirements. However, if RockBox were to show up on a Neuros and nothing
else did, I'm flexible :-)

It's funny. Every time I've blasted the company about Open Source, a crack
has opened in the stone wall and something has shaken out. I certainly have
to wonder about the timing of this latest announcement vs my last post on the
subject :-)
