sure, but appearance is the key point.

Archos is a good example of what we should not do ...

I'm still amazed by the technicals limits of the iPhone, and how
people can still want to buy them ... same for iPod ...

iPod : no mp3, no FM radio, no USB mass storage support
iPhone : no standard visio, no ability to create without iTunes or
third party tools photo albums, less capable facebook integration, no
FM radio, no flash,  and so on ...
