True, ipod as well as a zune would work. Unfortunately they are a lot
more money. I use my PDA (Cingular 8525) for vidoes, but no video out on
that. Plus lacks storage....
That's the reason I'm considering the device mentioned. For around $180
plus S&H I could get the mentioned device with 160GB of storage. I risk
S&H and 15% restocking if it doesn't work, probably around $30. $80 plus
S&H for 30GB model.
Thanks for the all the input so far!
