Since it seems to be the buzz around the nets lately I'll jump on the bandwagon as well. Ok I don't have any insider information here. In fact I won't even try to summarize the current rumors. We'll find out what it is eventually anyway. Instead I'll just engage in thought exercise on what kind of device I might want and be willing to buy.
