We simply can't get enough of cheap, nasty, and niche Windows CE devices -- which is why the iOpen-081A is like music to our ears. Awesome music. This garish pile of plastic does just about everything you'd want a portable device to do, unless you need to do a lot of data entry (or any, since it doesn't have a keyboard of any sort). Still, the iOpen features a 480 x 272 touchscreen display, an ARM926 CPU, 2GB of flash storage, 64MB of SDRAM, 802.11b/g, GPS, SD and MMC card support, as well as a USB port for hooking up something like a keyboard or flash drive. As a media player, it seems to support all of the familiar formats (MP3, MP4, WMA, AVI), and we wouldn't be surprised if there were a few emulators hanging around on this bad boy. Hey, if you've got 2300 yuan (about $336) to spare and absolutely no concerns about what your devices look like, you could do worse.
