All Play And No Work...

Rhythmbox for the Nokia 770 is in development and near completion according to the (void *) blog. He's even got screenshots of the app in action. It looks really good, and I can't wait to try it out. By the way, is it me, or are there way more media players than productivity apps for the 770 these days? I mean, there's the built in audio and video players, Streamtuner, MPlayer, Media Streamer, Ogg Vorbis Player, Park Cast Player, and soon Rhythmbox. It sure would be great to have this many web browser options or even VoIP options. And I'm sure most 770 users will agree that there's a need for an email client alternative for the device. Anyway, I've become attached to Rhythmbox in Ubuntu, so a version for the 770 is definitely welcome.

Speaking of media players, the new Creative ZEN Vision W may give the Microsoft Zune [1] [2] a run for it's money in a "who's killing who?" media player showdown that includes the new iPod family. It's a gadget slaughterhouse over here!
