No you weren't. You started this thread at about 9PM whereas the one I linked was made at around 2PM.

It would be great for a portable entertainment device, heck id certainly use it for watching movies. Around the house on the wifi, or say on a trip if theres a wifi connection nearby. EXcept.... it has poor support for the common media containers.. ie mkv.

Nail on the head.

It's a re marketed ipod touch with a large screen. I mean, really... has it gotten to the point that apple can just pitch whatever they want to rehash to the public and everyone will faun over them and praise them for how amazing it is? Truly sad...
