I've heard that Linux boots on the HTC universal now, so does the Zaurus 3100 (almost) have a competitor now? How long until we can expect to see pdaxrom or openzaurus running on this?

Does the imate jasjar (or any HTC Universal based phone/pda) have 2700g graphics? I can't find anything on the net to back this up. Could it be 'modded' in? People believe this could be possible on the CXX00 Zaurii.

If its not got 2700g, what graphics chipset is it? Is it the ATI w100, as used in the CXXX Z's? How does it compare to bvdd?

So the HTC has built in wi-fi, bluetooth, phone, stereo speakers and camera and more. The REAL Zaurus advantage, of course, is we already have many fully-functional Linux versions to choose from. On the hardware side, its not much but in its defence the Z has a couple of CF slots (one for the microdrive) over the HTC but is there anything else the Z has over the Universal i'm forgetting? Does the Universal have USB host?

Anybody here own both or got a link to a comparison between the C3100 and the Universal?

Which is the best for overclocking? I'd presume both will run at 624Mhz+ comfortably- I know my C3000 does.

All this this has made me think- we've got out open OS on the Z but just how open is the Zaurus hardware (esp. the Cxx00 series)? Just how much stuff has had to be reverse-engineered to get 2.6 running on the latest Z's?

Finally, I wonder what transfer rate you can get off the HTC SD card slot (which does support SDIO, under WM5 at least)- could the speed compare to a CF slot on the Z? I realise most of these questions are about the HTC so I should post this on a HTC board if I can find one.

Could the HTC Universal (or even its soon to be released updated model Hermes) soon be a better Linux PDA than the latest Z?
