    Yeh, i noticed that too when I was browsing the site when the partnership was announced. If it's decent quality I might be tempted to pick up a couple of them.

    I think you can get the exact same thing on eBay for a lot cheaper (like $40 instead of $80). The projuct is some Hong Kong ripoff of the Nano as it is, so it's not like eBay items are going to be of any less quality.

    Expect blurry, slow frame rate video.. that's what you usually get with the cheapies.
    You will have to convert all video files to AMV format, likely with their crappy software.

    Get what ya pay for, serviceable but irksome.

    Like mthrnite said the MP4 functions will most likely suck what with all the converting.

    If you are after a cheapo MP3/MP4 player pick up a discontinued branded MP3 player from ebay or somewhere. This article might be worth a read.

    From what I've heard about these cheap knockoffs they break in no time. You may as well save your money up and buy a proper ipod that can play videos.

    or you forget about getting a mp3 player and get a phone with good media playback and such.
    phones lately are rivalling mp3 players in terms of quality and wih the sony erricson W series hones, theres a ton of custom drivers(audio, camera, voice) available, so you can make it even better quality than it is.
    the W810 is probably the best, but i heard that the W700 has the best audio. a great balance between loudness and quality, which the w810 lacks in default(*loudness)
    BE WARNED! to change drivers on your phone you have to flash it first and its a horrible process.
    its not going to brick your phone but it a really complex process which if you leave unfinished, the phone wont come on due to software/firmware issues(which you have to replace during flashing).
    it took me 4 hours to exactly figure out how to do it properly, after that it only takes me ~10 minutes to flash it, enter it, switch what i need to (drivers, software, etc..) and reflash it with the original firmware

    heres a link to a great guide with links to all the sofware you will need
