When I purchased this I was looking to replace two of the three devices I always have with me, cell phone, iPod Nano, and Palm M515. It is of course a very capable music player with all of the trimmings one expects from an iPod. However, I was very disappointed with the PDA aspects of it. It is so close, but not quite there. The alarms are the weak point. No choice on what tones can be used, the one it uses is too short and not loud enough for me, and no snooze function, I figured since iCal lets you choose what sound to play, and has snoozes this device would too, but it does not do either. If it had an option to set to repeat the existing sound until dismissed it would be a vast improvement. So, if you use a PDA for an alarm clock like I do, this is a big pass, if you want something to view an agenda maintained in iCal, but do not need the alarms this may be for you.
As for the music/video player the screen is beautiful and makes album art and video playback a wonderful experience. But for me the non-repeating alarms was a deal breaker.
