Wish for 2nd generation Neo: USB 2.0

Since everyone is drooling about the next iteration of the Neo which is
exptected to include WiFi, I figured I'd add a request for USB 2.0. This
allows us to use a USB VGA adapter
(http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/06/08/add_a_monitor_using_usb/ - Linux
driver available!). A VGA port enables the Neo2 to replace a laptop for
doing presentations (in some cases) and you could even watch movies stored
on its microSD card (or streamed by a BluOnyx) on a battery powered HMD! :-)

While you're at it, please include some kind of hardware graphics
acceleration to speed up video playback and maybe allow cooler games...
