If you're into being able to 'get at' the device software wise then take
a look at the TopField 5800 as well - a tad more expensive (250 ish)
and similar spec but has an SDK available to customise the operation,
add features etc. These are called 'TAPS'.  Quite a large
library/usergroup available on DigitalSpy and also http://www.toppy.org.uk/
