This appears to be a rebranded XClef HD-500, which indeed looks like a pretty nice device: http://www.xclef.com/pro03_e.htm
I found some info in a dutch forum:
Photo of internals:
Microcontroller: Motorola MCF5249, with a ColdFire CPU clocked at 120 MHz.
USB controller: Our old friend the In-System ISD300
Flash: AM 29LV160DB-EC90
Motorola sample block schematic:
Motorola MCF5249 product page, with plenty of documentation:
The display resolution is 160x105 and uses EL backlight.
This indeed looks like a device we could have fun some with!
(Xclef also makes an 1.8"-disk model called HD-800. Those of you who value size over capacity may want to have a look at that.)
