Sounds good, but damn that looks exactly like an iPhone.

But... is it a PMP or a phone? I mean, it's running Android so a phone is plausible.

As far as I know they have no intentions of making it a phone, but I'm guessing that with the Android OS it wouldn't be too difficult if they wanted to.
This is looking far better than I dared to expect, and I feel I probably should remain skeptical, but the idea of an mp3 player with all those feature which supports drag and drop would be great. Oh and I hope to god this time they make the SD cards useful!

AGH!!! Why do they keep flooding better and better look touch screen DAPS to the market! I don't know which to buy... Although, without SD card integration this won't be a buy for me.

Edit: There's a video of it in the link.

You might wanna check it out.

Thanks, seems it lacks some of the "polish" of the ipod touch and iphone OS but at such an early stage that can be forgiven. I was going to get the Zune 120, then the Zune HD, and now this comes. Why do I have to be so indecisive!

Something else I'm wondering is, why so much secrecy about the quality of the camera? All they've said so far is that it's "HD" which isn't particularly useful.

Is that a developer kit or a consumer version? I can't believe it would be ready for sale already. Maybe my ZVM can finally be laid to rest

Edit: You beat me

Just saw a video of it on Gizmodo. If it turns out to be everything it claims to be, I think we have a winner here.

What I don't understand is why they had to blatantly rip off the iPod Touch/iPhone.

Specs look like I was right. The back camera can record HD video up to 1080p. It supports HDMI output too. There's a front VGA quality camera for video chat. They've throws in GPS, accelerometer, and the kitchen sink too!
