Didn't find this here yet, but I didn't really search, so forgive me if this is a repeat post. At best, this might renew some interest.


It's got everything we would need at a reasonable price AFAIK ; not much documentation however. If anyone has done this already, maybe some links/notes/screenshots could be posted?


I haven't really seen any screenshots of Xorg running yet, but it's supposedly in one of the available ROM images. with matchbox/kdrive

EDIT: gumstix was mentioned way back here over two years ago along with the coLibri module which has been upgraded now to the pxa320 @ 806MHz, but doesn't come with OpenEmbedded.

The main thing that's stopping me from buying gumstix I guess is a general distaste for xscale compared to x86... (thinking mini-ITX, 'cause I still haven't gotten one yet)


EDIT2: mini-ITX is too big. (saving to buy a robostix combo)

Hell, I'm intrested. If you do get this, take some close-up pictures and send them my way. I'd love to help design an integrated case with the touchscreen. We could probably find a OTS battery to fit behind the screen, next to the gumsitx. I think it would be really cool to compile a list of components to assemble your own PDA, and I imagine that alot of members here would be intrested.
