iam looking at getting a pmp which can do the following:

1. Wifi - so i can watch vids from youtube or veoh. Also, ability to connect via wifi to a network share so i can stream vids off that.
2. at least 60 gig HD. Non locked drives would be desirable so that i can upgrade the storage at a later stage.
3. be able to play vid's without transcoding formats
4. output video to tv
5. supported locally

Optional bits are:

1. removable battery
2. DVR capabilities
3. ability to add gps capabilities when available
4. ability to add DVB-T when available.
i narrowed down my search to the COWON Q5W. Does anyone on the forums have this and would like to comment about its capabilities? I had a look at the archos 605 wifi but dont think its supported locally.

I know its not portable but this little baby has to be the neatest media player/client on the block, and only US$179.

yeah got that, hence I worded the post as I did, simply pointing out what you can find out there now, some pretty clever stuff and very reasonable prices.
