Indeed. I was looking at IIRC the 700 series (tho might have been the
500), and came to the same conclusion. The simple fact is that nothing
they currently have available seems to be even remotely close to being
supported by the community stuff. By the time it is, it's very likely they
won't be selling it any more.
For that reason, I'm writing Archos off as a choice at this point in time.
Due to their popularity, support for iPods is a fairly good gamble, even
yet to be released models with different hardware. It may take awhile,
but it's fairly likely to happen. The iriver h10s look to be the only
other close to viable alternatives in the 20+ gig range, at this point.
There are several sub-10GB flash based players in various stages of
support, but that's not what I'm looking at.
