Hehe - Kazu, it's really quite hilarious, imagining your avatar going "Aaaagh! Bastards!".

Either way. This is *so* the one I was waiting for - now I can watch music videos at....two and a half inches! For some reason, the big TVs are getting bigger, and the small ones are getting smaller. And still, for some reason I fetishize both. Curses!

A couple? mmmm swish, Mr 2 Ipods :wink:

Heh heh, it does sound cool, but I think I'll go the way of the PSP. One of my mates is tearing his hair out over this at the moment, PSP or Ipod, Ipod or PSP.

well... as far as screens go, i believe the PSP has the advantage here. and now that a 4 gigs hard drive is available for it it's a good alternative. as for me i'll stay with my portable PC and it's 15'4 screen: it can read all formats of videos ans DVDs too, and i don't strain my eyes : )

Okay, call me nuts, but I can't imagine myself watching a movie the size of elisio's avatar.

By the way, Kazu, just curious -- why do you have a couple of iPods? Are they for specific purposes? ( and do you carry them around with you in a Batman-like utility belt? :wink: )

I've watched movies on my nokia n-gage, size is only 176X132,
but it still looks good, even with subtitles!

It looks pretty slick, but I'm reserving judgement until after the techblogs do some hands on testing. And tear some apart. Cuz that's always fun.

On a negative note, the video playback time is a bit of a joke. And no TV-out on the device itself? :(
