SIMpad forum / Better Browser Than Opera 7.5.5 ?
« on: January 21, 2007, 04:53:02 pm »
What's the best browser I can run on the SimPad?

The latest I could get a good while ago was Opera 7.5.5, which seemed to have leaked from the Zaurus. However, it crashes often and has its own style of presentation, to put it mild.

I need Javascript (more specifically a XMLHTTP request to do some AJAX). The old Opera has Javascript, but not such features.

SIMpad forum / Here Are Simpad Batteries (germany)

My simpad's battery life is down to a few seconds. I found replacement cells here:
Panasonic cells CGP345010
You'd need 4 of them for a pack, quite a cheap replacement. I have just received mine, they have more available. I can post some pictures on how to refurbish the pack, once I'm done with it.

SIMpad forum / What's The Best I Can Install?

Please excuse this noob-kindof question,

In short, I'd welcome any status info and pointers what a Simpad can do these days.

I own a simpad with Opie 0.8.something installed, did this perhaps 2 years ago (after an article in the german c't magazine) and haven't changed a bit since. I should care more about keeping it up to date, but am no Linux user elsewhere (Windows lamer, boo).

My pad is still in a state with no useful sound, some ancient opera version which was meant for a Zaurus or so, the mail client was not properly compiled back then, the power button doesn't suspend it and the other buttons are not useful either.
I'd love to have firefox or a more recent opera on it, a mail client and more stability. A JPEG browser woulb be nice, too, I tried MooView but it crashes.

A couple of days ago I read that the 2 founders (cmartin and his fellow) have *sold* their pads, the project is dead. It was pointed to some other Linux port, I forgot the name, which will support the Simpad, but it hasn't been released yet.

More speed would also be great, I vaguely remember having read that there's some display hardware accelerator which is currently unused?

I woudn't mind contributing myself (I'm an embedded software developer), in the past I haven't done so because I have close to no clue about Linux and it was said the setup of a development environment is very demanding. Are "we" perhaps benefiting from the Nokia 770, can that software run on / be ported to the Simpad?
