I would imagine devices like the Nokia 810 should be able to play
Theora videos. They're bigger than an iPod, and I'm not sure if
they'll fit in a shirt pocket, but if not, they can probably fit
in a pants pocket.

Has anyone used one of these to play Theora videos? Does the built-in
video player support Theora, or do you have to download a driver or
a different video player first?
