Yes, and I wonder how many have MP5 players to sell?
The product managers should be rushing out there and telling all their Linux
suppliers to make and give them MP5 players - for example.
Veho Quinque Linux MP5 player as an example is a world apart from MP4
players and costs less than many an MP4 player.
It plays mpg files from video CDs directly without need for conversion.
How much management time that must save thanks to 200MHz Linux Arm CPU!!!
But the world is changing even faster.
Now the 400MHz $7 Arm chips are out. http://www.linux4sam.org/ 
So you could be running full blown Linux and Open Office 
on your 'MP6 player'!!!!!!!!!!!

Its all down to product managers going out there and raiding the
Linux houses, placing orders and giving out the specifications
to get the next generation of even more powerful Linux products built and
ready before next Christmas.
