Wow, I've started a real topic and am just getting back to it-
For those who got 'em ordered, updates would be greatly greatly appreciated by all!
I'm in too deep with my TC1100 and C3100 ATM (money and time both short) but won't hesitate to throw down for this thing if it's well received.
I'm still thinking about the Sharp D4 though...I mean an X86 processor in your pocket is the real thing, but it's still too big...
if the OQO Model 3 is a clamshell, well, someone's finally nailed it.

I'm sure everybody will hear about how the Pandora turned out in late November/early December (I know I'll let everybody know in one form or another).

if only it had a better keyboard, it makes it seem, well, like a toy (which I guess it is).

This toy now will get 256Mb RAM and 512Mb NAND !!!
Default distro is going to be Angstrom, ubuntu-downloadable-SD-Image available.

Sounds great for a toy,
Chero.

I don't care what people call it. It runs Linux, has insane specs (the extra RAM is going to be AWESOME), and is as open-source as they come.

I'm building my Angstrom toolchain as I type this biggrin.gif

Guys in case you havent read and you preordered I have some info. The good news is that the device is now getting 512MB of NAND and 256MB of RAM. The bad news is that they are switching banks and many credit cards will be refunded. They are sending a newsletter soon. If it is refunded you will have to reorder the device. They are giving the ram at no cost because of this issue.

Depending on what the keyboard is like, I might get one. I mainly use my zaurus for typing, so if I were to replace it, the keyboard would need to be good. other than that it looks like a good platform.

Ok, damn, that extra bump of NAND and RAM is...awesome! Why o why couldn't it have a tablet screen!?! As for arm-based systems, though, I suppose you don't get much more full-featured than this sucker!

According to the FAQ on their homepage, because it's patented.

It looks like they're looking for developers to write apps and do kernel work to seed with pre-release units still: http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php?showtopic=45218

Getting developers from the Zaurus community to work on it would be great, IMO, as the productivity of the Zaurus could be moved to the Pandora.

More delays... sad.gif

They're hoping to have some out by the end of the year, but projecting it may be Jan 2009 before people get them.
