More interesting would be the 65k colour screen, pretty unique for such a small device."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.digitalmediathoughts.com/images/ibead_1000.jpg" /><br /><br />Umm, what is with that name? :) The specs are pretty sweet though - 1.5 GB drive it supports MP3/WMA/ASF/WAV/Ogg, and can display BMP/JPEG images on its 128 x 128 pixel 65,000 color screen. It also has USB 2.0 support, and an integrated FM tuner, digital voice recorder, and line-in encoder. It has a 10-hour Li-polymer battery, playlists support, text viewer, and sports dimensions that are tiny (3.6 x 1.6 x 0.7 inches).
