I have discussed Personal Media Players as the next MP3 players but now there is a use besides entertainment, learning. A Korean company, Koreaedu, has teamed up with IRiver to create tutorials for Korean students taking the Korean college entrance exam. Now Korean students are more advanced than American students in gadgets but I could see this as a great application. Think business man attends a conference and at that conference they provide you video that compliments the speakers and subjects. You could argue this can be done now with a laptop, yes, but with a PMP you are allowed more freedom in viewing the material.
It may not catch on here but it is fun to discuss.
