It's been a while since I contributed anything, but today for some reason I just visited the forum and saw the simpad community alive.
Wow. This is so nice! I gave my 128 Mb RAM simpad to Koen Koei, in the hope he would develop some stuff so that the platform would not end up dead.
I don't know if it helped, but I'm happy to see so many people doing so many great things with the simpad, even so many years after it has been discontinued.
Wish you all good luck!

Hi Guylhem, hope you're covered from your terrible accidant! Congratulations on your Ph.D, Doc :-)
Yeah, it's fun with the SIMpad. Almost a year after I resigned from OpenSIMpad.org, some folks relaunched the site and joined OE to work on that. I'm glad to see that happening although I no longer have such a device.
The SIMpad was groundbreaking, ahead of its time. Alas, SIEMENS really screwed up marketing that.
All the best.

Hi Guylhem, I'm also pleased to have you around, and also hope you're fully recovered.
Siemens still manage to do some great products, I've been tempted by some really nice stylistic tablets on ebay, and also considered one of their supersized superzaurus u810/u820 models.
great products gain a cult following!
