Since I'm Gemini-less, I've only been lurking here (hats off to Varti for running such a good forum!), but a recent company mistake during my car-cleaning is giving me $350 USD compensation. That's close enough to the $599 USD for me to consider buying a Gemini.

I've been a user of Zaurus, Psion. Windows CE, so I understand the essential benefits and limitations of handheld devices.

So my question to current users: should I pull the trigger or wait for the next Gemini edition?

I have a GPD Pocket--a machine that has had its own keyboard problems--that I truly enjoy, but I am envious of Gemini owners who have a already-functioning or key-mat-repaired keyboard.

I'm a T-Mobile user in the US and for a phone, I use a Blackberry Priv (pkb). If any current user has any insight into T-Mobile/Gemini usage, I'd be very appreciative. It would be a pleasure to retire the Priv and use a Gemini as a phone.

Thanks in advance for any advice,

I have a Netgear MA701, a perfectly servicable cf wifi card.

But since I use my cf slot for nothing else, I would prefer to leave my wifi card in all the time. The MA701 protrudes too much to transport the machine safely.

I've looked at the hardware wiki, but haven't found a card that might live peacefully in the cf slot without any significant protrusion. Perhaps something with a retractable antenna, something with a structure similar to the old X-Jack PCMCIA modems.

Is this possible?

Hi, All,

I'm going to plunge into bluetooth, and I've found all necessary files except for these two for file-transferring:


I've googled hard but the links are few and dead. Can anybody point me to their whereabouts?

Just got a SL-C1000, but I've used CE devices for a long time, and DVD Catalyst 3 has always made playable movies for those slow processors. So I played around with DVD Cat 3 and the mplayer/Zplayer and found that the combination makes for sharp, audio-synched full-length movies. My specs are:

320x240 resolution
Video quality: 500kbs
Sound quality: 128kbs
Conversion format: mpeg2-mp2
Volume: 10
Frame Rate: 30

These specs are too rich for the Sharp player, so for that player, I had to dumb down the frame rate to 20 and the sound to 64. Nor could I get Kino2 to play the files with any specs. But Zplayer works great.


DVD Catalyst 3 is a one-man show and I see that Mitch is having a half-price sale. 9.95USD for the full program. He does email support and it's been very fast and helpful in my experience with the HP Jornada 720 and my Zune and various Nokias.

At any rate, I've joined the Z party too late, I think, but my long plane rides will be a little more convienent.
