Olympus m:robe: Camera/MP3 Player

I don't generally think too much of devices that try to do everything, instead of just doing one thing really well, but yesterday, as I walked around with three mobile phones, an mp3 player, and two cameras, I thought maybe I should reconsider.
The Olympus m:robe 500 sounds promising: it's a 20 GB hard drive-based mp3 player with a built-in 1.2 megapixel digital camera and a 3.7 inch high res touch screen. While it doesn't look like the m:robe (what a stupid name, unless the cleverness is just escaping me) supports video, there will be something called "remix mode" where you can make slideshows set to music. You can also upload images taken with other cameras (probably just via a USB connection) so you can go all out with those "mini movie productions" and show people your vast digital photo album.
The m:robe will be available in January 2005 for $500.
