hehe that would be quiet stupid dont you think if they designed a gadget like this with a battery with a life of 15 mins

You can listen 10 hours of music with it or watch for 5 hours movies

Here in holland the Gmini is almost selling better than the iPods since the launch of the Gmini. The Gmini has so much more to offer than the iPod and that for almost the same price.

Whats better than watching your favorite movie in the train when going to work!
Try that with the iPod

Watching your favorite game! (recorded or live)... I'm waiting for the era of trully on-demand portable devices - imagine having the following choices on your finger tips:

1. Watch your favorite show
2. Watch the game you missed or the one that's on
3. Watch a movie
4. Watch news real time
5. Listen to radio or satelite radio
6. Listen to MP3's
7. Play a game on demand - in a stand alone or team(while listening to MP3 or radio)
8. chat with your mates
9. Surf the web
10. Make a phone call

Well... while it may sound excessive, I'd say that you will see something very close in the next 3 years or so. With laptops getting smaller and more powerfull and wireless taking off, the next big thing will be the wireless wave.

When all major forms of wireless will consolidate, this will open up a whole new can of technology worms.

Looks like fun times are ahead.

THE BATTERY LIFE IS HORRIBLE! I DO NOT RECOMMEND ARCHOS PRODUCTS

Well, I have the Archos AV320. Everything about it is pretty amazing...except the 3 hours of music battery life

Wrong my cousin bought a 30 gig Ipod in 2003 andhe had to buy USB 2.0 CarD (Hardware) and also the damn wire. He spent 600 on the whole thing. I mean goooooooood thats way too much and also the Ipod menu should atleast have color.Not just white and black/gray
