I understand that there is a new Olympus recorder coming that sounds
like it should be pretty interesting.  It will be the Olympus WS310M.
Standard formats will be WMA and MP3.  The memory size is 512MB, it has
built-in stereo mikes, binaral stereo headphones, and some fantastic
amounts of recording times depending on the quality of recording you
want.  The company we use at work to purchase on state contract says it
will be available in February, and the list price will be $179.
