I got the Archos 605 wifi. It does all the fun things an iPod Touch can, but with larger capacity and you're not tied to using iTunes/iPhoto, and -- importantly -- you can easily transfer images via USB host connection. It handles Raw format which sold it for me. I like it more and more every time I use it!

Pro:
Great music player, video player (and recorder!).
USB host, so can transfer from camera/card reader.
Can display jpeg and raw images (including "touch to zoom" function).
Full file management -- move, add folders, rename, delete, etc.
Wifi -- browse web, e-mail (via webmail account), upload images, etc.
Range of capacity: 4GB to 160GB.
Very high quality/resolution screen.

Con:
Battery life is not huge -- 5 hours video, 12-ish hours music only.

The power, USB, video, audio and power connections are all via proprietary connectors -- only the USB cable to connect/charge via PC is included; the rest are at extra cost on various docking stations.
It's not as petite as an iPod or a music-only player.
£250 for player (80GB) plus docking station.
