ZiiO 16GB for $269. Also 8GB for $249.

The video demo shows ebook reading. 480x800 display size, VGA front camera, HDMI out from 1GHz ZMS-08 ARM processor, speakers.

For just a few dollars mor you can get an Archos 70; well ... that is if you can find someone who has them in stock. They seem to sell out a lot!

Hmm, I couldn't find anything on that, but for me that's a big plus...

Seriously? I can't imagine any reason to want a 7" tablet with a resistive screen.

Anyway, it's in the official product specifications: http://en.store.creative.com/product...=948&pid=20231

Display: 16.8mill color TFT, Resistive Touch

Resistive is only a plus in my book if it has a stylus and a digitizer for taking notes and such. Otherwise...capacitive is better.

That said, a decent resistive screen can be ok.

Because I don't like to touch the screen with my fingers? I prefer a stylus. Even on my Sony I use a stylus, even though that one reacts perfectly with a finger...

And it's not for sale in Europe (yet), and I've only seen a Dutch news item. Which didn't post a link to the site itself.

I really like Creative, but that is a bit too pricy for me even if I had the money right now. My first 2 mp3 players were Creative, but after the Zen Vision M, they seemed to stop creating good quality and economical devices. The zii egg has been a developer's only thing for at least 1-2 years. I can't remember when I first heard about it. At least they are doing something with the brand. It is an attractive device.
