Too bad the Archos is not open.  The 605 is going for $199.99 now.  Now that
Nokia has abandoned this market, there is an opportunity for a more
perceptive company.  Besides Archos, I have discovered similar platforms:
Porient H12, Viliv S5 Mid, Lenovo IdeaPad U8, BenQ S6, and Peartree Z5xx. 
Anyone know of any that I missed?  None of these are shipping in the US
yet, and the Peartree is actually a development platform.  The N800 was
manufactured in Korea.  Anyone know by what company?
