3-inch LCD Touchscreen
Enjoy your favorite videos or pictures and navigate with ease on the Espresso's 3-inch touchscreen display with 420 x 240 pixel resolution.
The screen also features haptic technology, so you get tactile response to your touch, making for a more natural feel than a standard touchscreen.
G-Sensor technology enables the screen display to rotate based on the player's position. The player can adjust/rotate the screen display (except for the video play) to any direction when you flip the player.
While some devices limit you with their skimpy format support, the Espresso will play MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, APE, and OGG music formats for about 15 hours on a single charge. Standard play modes like repeat and shuffle are included, along with A-B repeat play for repeating a specific section of a file.
And of course the Espresso supports ID3 tages (versions 1 and 2) for displaying song info while you listen. If you're a lyrics obsessive, you'll appreciate the LRC file support for displaying the words to your favorite tunes.

Take your favorite videos with you and enjoy them anywhere with the Espresso's brilliant screen. You'll get about four hours of video playback on a single charge.
Once again, the Espresso delivers on format support: AVI, RM/RMVB, FLV, WMV, 3GP, MPG, DAT, and MP4 formats are all supported, so you can enjoy more video with less conversion.
Picture and Text Viewer
Browse and view your favorite images in JPEG, BMP and GIF formats. Zoom in and out or play a slideshow for friends.
The Espresso's text viewer lets you change fonts/colors, set and recall bookmarks, and even auto-browse through multiple files in the interval you set.
Naturally, you can keep the tunes rolling while you enjoy these features.
The Espresso boasts an FM Transceiver, meaning you can both transmit and receive FM radio. This means you can play your favorite songs and tune in the nearest radio (in your living room, car, etc.) to your Espresso.
As for standard FM radio, you're also covered, complete with user station presets and FM recording--record your favorite show for later enjoyment.
Record voice memos, meetings, lectures, or anything else you decide to point the built-in microphone at directly to your espresso in WAV format.
Easy File Transfer and Portable Storage
Enjoy transfer speeds of up to 4MB/S thanks to the Espresso's USB 2 interface. Windows2000/XP/Vista are all supported, and no driver is necessary for the latter two.
You can also use the Espresso as a USB storage drive for taking a few choice files with you.

Here are some of findings which might help other people's buying decision. Anyway, I am satisfied with this purchase and would recommend this to anyone who wants to use MP3 in daily life.
1. Design: Very simple. No buttons, Good quality case.
2. Touch Screen: Very responsive. Especially, the unit vibrates when I touch the screen, so I know if I touch it correctly or not. Response rate is very good compared to other cheap touch players (I owned cheap touch screen mp4 from other company,,,, it was so hard to touch the item that I wanted)
3. Rotating Screen: The screen rotates as I rotate the unit. I do not have to try to hold it in one direction. Any direction will show correct display. (it actually rotates 360 degree)
4. FM Radio and Transmitter: This is the feature I like the most. Now I can use my player in the car without buying an expensive FM transmitter ($$$$$). Very clear sound throught your car FM radio. You need to plug the ear phone since it will be used as antena
5. Music and Video: supports various formats. Quality is superb. Many of videos need to be resized to be directly played in the player. No problem. There are tons of free conversion software on the net.
6. In-ear metal headphone: WOW... by itselt, it looks so expensive. I found the same one at Fry's at $19.95.. Excellect Noise isolating headphone
7. Drag and Drop: No software needed. Just copy all files from your PC and paste into the player. It will automatically be sorted by the player (Music, Video, pictures, etc)
1. Even the screen is 3", it is still small for users like me to touch menu correctly with fingers. But Acceptable because it has up and down icons on each menu screen.

UPDATE: 4/10/12 STILL NOTHING. CAN NOT CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER. I WISH AMAZON WOULD STOP CARRYING PRODUCT FROM THIS MANUFACTURER. CROOKS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO PROFIT FROM SUCH A RESOURCEFUL SITE.
03/24/14 I'm pretty sure there is nothing I can do to get my product back and I see Latte continues to market new product sold here on Amazon and also Target.com. I strongly suggest you purchase something else to avoid he hassle and better yet, send a message to business' like this that think they can do what ever they want without any repercussion. It's just bad business and I have to believe that in the end, they'll get what they deserve.
A previous review mentioned the pros and cons I've also found, so I won't repeat.
There was just one area I had trouble with, and that was reading text. The manual states they have to be txt ANSI format, but the player would only display a few pages and not the entire document. After much trial and error, I found that the text file needs to be in Unicode format instead. To convert, I simply opened the text doc in Notepad and saved as txt Unicode. I found no information anywhere ref others with this same problem. Edit 092409: I found that I must turn off the screen rotation while reading text. When the screen rotated, the document went back to the beginning.
The FM transmitter is as good as stated in a previous review. It works great, definitely a benefit.
The unit vibrates when you touch a button, which is cool, but that function can be turned off. The screen rotation can be turned off also. It also offers different "desktop" backgrounds, but you cannot use your own photo as the background.
I was able to load my .avi movies right onto the player without converting them. You may want to make them a smaller file, if you're concerned about space. (My iRiver came with conversion software that makes the movies 320x240. This size worked pretty well on the Espresso, too.)
I would definitely recommend this product.
