I was looking at these today. I'm thinking about buying the Belkin Media Reader and using the iPod as a lightweight image storage device when on vacation.
I can buy the 20GB and the Belkin Media Reader for around $480. That's a lot, lot cheaper than the comparable amount of storage space in Compact Flash cards.
The iPod is turning into a nice little device. I want to know when they are going to marry all these technologies into one nice little PDA.
Duke University is supplying all incoming freshmen (1650 of them) with iPods this year. The iPod is going to be filled with professor lectures, University information, etc. Really cool idea. With the Belkin microphone it instantly becomes a voice recorder. Really neat device. Lots of uses.
