interesting - phone + zaurus



In the "at least it's not the same old, same old" department, AVING has spotted a handset from Sharp that looks and acts like a MID. The 9225H is surprisingly small and thin yet has a Sharp Zaurus-like keyboard inside that looks pretty darn functional. It has a 3.5-inch wide VGA screen and a little LED display on the outside while in handset mode for phone functions. This will probably never step foot out of Asia but it's great to see something totally different.

I am selling my Zaurus C3100.

It is in very very good condition, as new. It has the US type charger, the usb client cable for sync and a usb host cable. It also has the Zaurus leather case, plus a pouch I bough for it as I find it more convenient.

It comes in its original box, japanese CDs and manuals. I also have 2 wifi CF cards and a 1 gig SD. Both wifi cards work excellent on this zaurus.

Currently I have PDAxii13 running quite well

I just purchased a Z on Ebay (SL-C1000) and am looking to get some opinions before it gets here.
I would like to know what is the best ROM out there for 2007. Many of the other posts I have found were from 2005 and complain about certain bugs that the community was actively trying to resolve.

I realize that there are no perfect roms, but if you can list the rom you currently use and why you prefer it over another it would help out tremendously.

Roms I know of:

Ubuntu mobile?

Thanks! laugh.gif

P.S - I dont want to sound like a hypocrite based on my other postings - I sold my Z (750) a few years ago and have been trying to find an alternative ever since. I finally gave up and just purchased the SL-C1000 yesterday. If the HTC Omni ever gets released I might have to rethink this again. For now - LONG LIVE THE Z!!!

Via just released a new version of the Mobile-ITX motherboard. This thing is small (credit card size) and powerful. 3"x1.8"

This can easily turn into a x86 zaurus - how cool with a mobile Ubuntu OS!!

Lets start off with a BIG MINUS - Windows Mobile 6 mad.gif

biggrin.gif There are wayyyyyy to many positives to get angry!!! biggrin.gif

It was about a year ago that the first rumors began circulating about a device from HTC called the Omni, which was supposed to be the successor to their "Universal" clamshell design. Since then, so little has been heard that it was presumed the Omni was canceled in favor of the Advantage tablet and the Shift UMPC. However, if a new report is correct, the Omni may be coming out this fall, with an impressive list of specs.

A small site called Unwired View claims to have gotten a hold of a 2007 HTC roadmap presentation, which it says includes limited specifications and renderings of the Omni.

As seen in the rendering, the device has a clamshell design, full QWERTY keyboard, and a sleek visual style. The most notable feature listed is a 4-inch, 800-by-480-pixel Widescreen-VGA display. This is backed by both TV and VGA outputs, and something described as a "sub-display" -- possibly a small OLED built into the outer casing, but nothing is said or listed to confirm this.

Other hardware includes:
internal GPS receiver,
UMTS/HSDPA (bands unknown),
Windows Mobile 6,
802.11b/g Wi-Fi.

The device's memory specifications seem to include a typo, but they appear to mean that the machine will carry 256 MB of ROM and 128 MB of RAM, as well as a microSD card slot. No mention is made of whether microSDHC support is included, but HTC units being released now support it, so presumably the Omni would as well, enabling cards of 4 GB and above.

No information was included in the report about the brand or speed of the processor, what GPS chipset was used, or projected selling price. Previous reports have associated the Omni will both a 400 MHz Samsung CPU and the Qualcomm MSM7200, also 400 MHz.

Lastly, the reported size of the Omni is 5.1 inches long, by 3.18 wide, by 0.63 inches thick. Unwired View says that the Omni hasn't yet been assigned the name it will be marketed under by HTC, but it is expected to launch this October.

Size of Zaurus SL-C1000/3X00
124 x 87 x 25 millimeter

Size of HTC OMNI
130 x 81 x 16-mm

The thing that scares me the most is that all the features look too good to be true - I guess we have to wait until October to see - - - and then we can pimp this with Linux!Attached Image
