A few of the guys at work have these:
 http://eng.iaudio.com/product/product_X5_feature.php

MP3, OGG, FLAC, WMA, WAV player; FM radio; voice, radio or line-in
recorder; MPEG4 (video) player (although its a pretty small screen);
text/image viewer; USB *host* support (so it can pull photos, etc
directly from cameras without an intermediate computer)

This particular one is disk-based (20/30 GB) - they have flash
versions that are smaller (in both size and storage).

From the Linux side, it just looks like a mass storage device that you
copy files onto (no ipod-style index rebuild required).  (The web site
specifically mentions Linux and MAC support)
