iRiver H340 up for grabs

I recently bought a 4gb Ipod Nano so I am considering selling my H340. I am
looking to get around 400 Australian dollars for it so if you are interested
please drop me a line to
I am running a build of rockbox on it from 29 May and it is performing
beautifully. I currently have about 30 gigs of music on it which I am also
to leave on if someone wants it too. I guess you can always delete it if
you think it is all crap.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
I am in Australia so we will have to consider various postage and payment
methods but we can discuss that later. I will pop it on EBay if I don't get
Cheers for now
