Anyone tried/considered something like the Archos Wifi enabled PMP's?

Save your money. I have 2 Archos 604WiFis and the Opera browser they come with is crap... No flash and they handle the standard Vera web-app very poorly. Any of the later generation Archos Wifi PMPs make you buy your browser separately.

Android based Archos are good, although still expensive. The cheapest one with 8GB storage is $250.

Also, you can use Vera's mobile interface - that doesn't use anything fancy... :)

@Maartenvt,

2010 will be the year of tablet computing, analysts say:

I recently picked up an ASUS ET1601, whiich is an 'all in one' machine with a 15" touch screen.  Nice looking little unit.  Installed Windows 7, put a shortcut on the desktop to Vera and then placed the unit on the counter in one end of the kitchen.
Walk up, hit the screen, up comes Vera's Dashboard and 'Bob's your Uncle'...I have a convenient, good looking touch screen for about $300CDN.

I'm currently working on a media center add-on for Vera and I will be using the Archos 9 tablet PC.  Windows CE will be to limiting and the Archos 9 tablet is Windows 7.
