Did they ever get rockbox running on a 100-gig plus player, in particular, one that's actually still available to buy when it gets rockbox support? That's what I've wanted all along.
When the netbooks came out, I gave up on a dedicated 100-gig-plus mp3 player running rockbox, and bought one of the first 100-gig-plus netbooks (Acer Aspire One, AOA150L, L meaning Linux, naturally), tho I did wait and get one with a SATA port, so I could replace the drive if/when desired, and reasonable reviews. I've been very happy with it, especially after putting Gentoo (compiled to a dedicated 32-bit build-image on my 64-bit workstation) on it, but if rockbox finally has support for a 100-gig plus player that I can still actually buy, I'd still consider it, as something smaller to haul around than the netbook.
FWIW, I've tried to cost-justify cell over the years but never could, so I don't have a cellphone either. Of course, with 4G coming out, and with it, at least sprint has a reasonably priced unlimited data plan (not this pitiful 5-gig-capped 3G stuff) that could reasonably substitute for my obviously fixed location cable service, the need for a 100-gig player might change, as streaming can replace it, but it'd still be useful to have a smaller-than-netbook freedomware based player I could fit most of my collection on, and just grab it, rather than worrying about figuring out what I might want to listen to beforehand.
