Hmm. USB client? Why can't one of those ARM chipsets include a USB master controller? That would make up for the relative scarcity of peripherals. A 200MHz XScale would probably be fast enough to do Ogg Vorbis decompression, but without an ethernet interface or an audio codec, it's kind of a pointless exercise.

Nevertheless, a very interesting control gadget.. may have to pick one up to play with.
