Archos_pma430You want one of those personal media players but you don’t want to skimp on features.  In addition to playing music and video on the go you want light PDA features and even WiFi so you can do email.  If this describes what you need you should check out the Archos PMA430, a unique Linux based media player with a ton of features.  The PMA430 has a touchscreen which makes using the PDA functions as simple as using a stylus.  While the Archos is pricey you get a lot of utility out of this media player that you don’t get in other players.  CNET has a great extensive review of the Archos and rated it very highly.  You can find another review on PC Magazine who also gave it one of their highest ratings.  Sounds like Archos has a real winner in the PMA430.  About $650.
