The Bantam BA1000 is a fully loaded portable hard disk player and built-in MP3 encoder. You can use the line in to record directly from a cassette, CD or album without a PC. Combined with an FM radio and voice recording capabilities, it offers the first customizable horizontal or vertical LCD with a white backlight display. The BA1000 includes USB 2.0 technology to transfer files up to 40 times quicker than standard USB 1.0 port connections.
This sounds very similar to the Archos Jukebox Recorder with 20GB hard disk, although it does not have an FM tuner. I wonder how large the hard disk will be on the BA1000.
