I was offered recently a small and nice Linux PDA Phone. It has a 2.4 QVGA touchscreen, Quadband GSM, Bluetooth, Camera and runs Qtopia Phone Edition. Some experimentation has shown that it is possible to ftp/telnet into the device. And, it weights just 90g and is only approx. 2/3 of the size of the Neo 1973 although the display isn't much smaller. What do you think I should do?

Well, I know the manufacturer but can't publish it here. It appears to be the standard ODM model, i.e. the branding can still be modified.

On a completely different subject, did you find the screen on the Neo1973 too tiny for typing, etc. dhns? That is my only concern for that device. It seems quite nice in all other aspects.

Typing accuracy depends on how the pen input is being done. The screen of the Neo isn't much larger, therefore it is not much more precise to hit keys on a virtual keyboard - even if the Neo has 4 times the display resolution (i.e. smaller pixels).

This device has also a handwriting/graffitti type input method (Qtopia).
