million times before. Still, the device manages to be reasonably svelte at 0.75-inches thick, and the MPEG, MOV, AVI, ASF, DivX and WMV codec support is fairly expansive. The device also manages a mic input and AV line-in, and the 6 hour battery life (12 hours with music) ain't too shabby. Sadly, the device interfaces with USB 1.1, and its 29,800 Yen pricetag ($257 US) doesn't really stand out from the crowd. All the same, we should be seeing this one in Japan on the 24th of August.
