Ditto for the D2 - recently it's become very usable and stable for music
playback, so long as you are aware of the caveats (basic touchscreen
support and the need for an SD card to save settings).

It seems daft for us not to support it in some way, especially since I'm
effectively doing this already with the community of D2 Rockbox users
over at iAudiophile. This has grown primarily due to the Rockbox forums
prohibiting discussion of "New" Ports except for development work in the
appropriate thread.

Unfortunately this has had the effect of keeping D2 discussion away from
most Rockbox devs, and has left us with a lack of interested and capable
developers - especially frustrating given that it's a popular and *still
available* DAP.

Rob.
