spartan: Thanks!  

ThC: Makes a lot of sense!

devster: We'll just have to wait and see a few more days... Hope to be able to report a success install to the list...

Anyone try to install rdesktop? -Would sooo much like it to work! Do RDP every day on my several old Windows machines.

 Will have my new c3k unit on the 29th and currently gather all possible ipk:s and hardware to make my zaurus experience as enjoyable as possible.

Eagerly waiting for my new zaurus...  Just wonder what extra stuff I need to buy to get it up and running as quickly as possible when it arrives.

*CF memory card: Doesn't the Zaurus sl-c3000 connect as an external drive in Windows XP out-of-the-box? Couldn't this route be used for installations, eg mcconvert for the initial japanese to english conversion...

*CF WiFi card: Will USB wifi work just as fine? I already have a D-link dwl 122 adapter (prism chipset) and an Iriver USB host cable with a mini a connector at one end...

General Discussion / Semi-transmissive vs transflective screens....
« on: November 02, 2004, 03:16:49 pm »
How great is the difference?

The way I've understood it, semi-transmissive screens are made up of uniform pixels that are both transmissive and reflective at the same time. "Transflective" screens on the other hand seem to use mixed dedicated transmissive and reflective pixels... At least this is my conclusion after a little Googling on the subject.

To me it seems like the effect should be about the same! -Readability in sunlight should be more a question of the ratio transmission/reflection than the method to achieve it... Perhaps the transmissive type could be a little grainier if anything?
Anyone had a chance to compare the different Zaurus models outdoors, the SL6000 with transflective vs the semi-transmissive ones?

A couple of pictures of the SL-6000... No text, but maybe somebody understands what the different parts are.

Great discussion!

Can't the external cf bay be assigned the home catalog (I don't know myself)? As for the size issue, maybe there is room inside for a standard card, who knows... We'll just have to wait for pictures... Another idea I had though, would be to use something like this:

An embedded NIC with coil antenna. Allready smaller than the drive, and with a coil antenna for better performance. Maybe there is an issue with drives though?

If you must, for some reason use an ordinary card, maybe the plastic can be trimmed to fit the space, and/or the card could be tilted a bit.

btw, I found one standard card for external antenna if someone is interested.. Maybe someone wants to add one to improve the range. Don't know about drivers and all that, but here it is anyway:

  Don't stop this wonderful discussion now!

The new c3000 seems to have an internal Hitachi microdrive with the same type of standard CF interface as those that have been popular to dissect from eg the Muvo2 MP3 player. Could anyone speculate on the possibilities to take out the drive of the Zaurus and instead fit an embedded CF WiFi card in the internal slot?

Given that the NIC has the proper physical dimensions to fit inside and that the wireless range will be affected, are there any other obvious hurdles?

I am not skilled in the ways a PDA is usually built and would be very interested to know if the internal CF can be expected to work differently from the ordinary slot for plug-in cards...

General Discussion / wifi card with plug-in antenna?

..."Wireless client Compact Flash card with an Agere Hermes 2 chipset and two external U.FL antenna connectors. The card supports IEEE802.11b"...

Maybe interesting for those who simply want to extend the range of their connection. Still has the pesky internal antenna sticking out...

Just had this wild idea though... Could it be that the new Zaurus has an internal CF slot for the idiotic hard drive? Would it then be possible to cannibalize it and just stick a wifi card in that slot? -Provided of course there is enough room for the antenna inside.. Just dreaming of course, but maybe. Are there any pictures online yet of an opened-up c3000?

Will probably buy a Nexio instead of the Zaurus...

Hi! Anyone know if there are cards with plug in antennas to buy somewhere? I absolutely hate the antennas that stick out of all the cards I've seen sofar. Instead I would like some kind of small jack and an antenna that either hangs lose or some kind of film with a coil that could be stuck to the back of eg a Zaurus... Incredible that Sharp decided not to integrate wifi in the new clamhell model... Would have bought it instantly!
