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.
