You did notice this is USB 1.1 not 2.0, right? Looks like they are slated
to release a 2.0 device in October, though.

I just might sell my FMR for this unit... It looks cooler and looks more
expandable (i.e., they have the option of playing formats other than MP3)

I just ordered the bundle. I'll report on it when it arrives. It doesn't
have bookmarking or resume but since it's open source, I can hack that in
little effort.

So far I really like this outfit. I called the support number and an
human who spoke the Queen's English answered. No automated attendant. A
couple of emails to support were answered in minutes. If the hardware is
nice as the company's public face, this should be a really great thing.

Maybe after Archos completely craters, you RockBox guys can migrate over
work on this platform.
