It would be cool also if the Y-cable needed for powered usb host was
included. Since I understand that the cable is kind of custom, and that's
one of the highlights of the neo (being able to connect usb stuff directly
to it), I think it should be included.

I also agree with including the charger. As for the pouch and the stylus,
they would be nice, but if needed they can be cut off.

Finally, the miniSD card, DEFINITELY leave it off, unless you get a really
really really good deal, because you can buy very high-capacity nowadays, so
it doesn't make much sense to pay for 512mb or such on the neo, and then buy
a multi-gb one (I am definitely getting one of those myself).
