    I'm researching the idea of creating an iPod killer/android based media device that's strong in features but cheaper than an iPod touch

    -WiFi/BT only
    -maximum 4.7 inches
    no phone capabilities
    -fm radio
    -Something like HTC's Boom Sound
    -32gb internal
    -expandable mem up to 120ish gb

    Among some other features as well.. a mini tablet if you will

    But I have no idea on how to begin. Any ideas?

    Start by laying out each module. How are you going to implement the FM radio? Which FM radio chip?

    Which screen are you going to use. Which screen driver does it need?

    Big question - are these going to be produced one by one, by hand? (They'll have to sell for at least several thousand dollars each to break even.) Or are you going to go to China and find some company to make them for you? (There are whole towns in China devoted to making what others design.)

    These are Engineering 101 questions. If you haven't gotten at least one engineering degree, you're cutting up a mammoth with a leaf. You may eventually get there, but if your time is worth minimum wage, it would have been cheaper to hire an engineering staff.
