I've got the 605 WiFi and have been pretty happy with it.  I've used it 
for watching video, reading PDFs and an MP3 player in the car, mounted 
using a GPS mounting system.  As a portable MP3 player I wouldn't 
recommend it, the button on the side are not conducive easy operation in 
a pocket and the screen makes it a tad large to carry around, I would be 
concerned about damaging it.

Another option to look at would be the Nokia N800.  For the price I 
think the N800 would be a better deal than the N810, especially since 
you are mainly looking for a media device.
