For years I've been using a 1st gen 20 GB Nixvue Digital Album with good
results, though battery life is now an issue with larger image sizes. I
just received an Archos Gmini 220 today. This is a 20 GB minidisk based mp3
player with CF card reader built into an ~ 4"x3"x1" form factor, not
counting cables and charger. Much smaller than the DA. Battery like is
quoted as "up to 10 hours depending on start/stops and writes", I'm
guessing used as an mp3 player you might get that.
