C1000/3x00 General discussions / Silly Question?
« on: February 22, 2006, 12:38:03 am »
So, this may sound like a silly question, but I just want to be sure.  

One of the short comings of the Nokia 770, and the fact that it is not really designed to be a PDA, is that it cannot wake itself from standby to sound off an alarm.  I am looking at buying a c1000 (or maybe a c860, if I find a really good deal), and probably installing Cacko, but I want to make sure it will be able to do the job.  

So, is it a silly question?

Speaking as one who is shopping now, and trying to decide between a used Cx60, new C1000 or a Nokia 770, I have to say your review is very helpful.  

I do have to ask about the screen.  As few people have mentioned trouble with the screen, and you mention that it  bothers you, how bad is it?  One of my main uses would be ebook reading, so if it is annoying to look at the screen for any length of time, that would pretty well shoot down that choice.

Thank again!

IMO, you'll want to use a sharp rom or cacko as these are the best out-of-the-box in terms of stability, features, and user-friendliness.  I've been using Opie Reader on a C760 & C860 with cacko for two years without any problem.  Installation is tweak-free and it runs great.

Thanks for the info...  Now I just have to decide if I should wait and see or jump straight in.  Time to look for some deals.

Okay, this is going to sound backwards to some of you, but here it goes.  

I am in the market for a new handheld, one which will read my existing fiction files (mostly HTML and iSilo), so OpieReader seems like a great solution.  Now I just need a machine to run it!  

I am a Linux novice, and I don't really want to become an expert, at least not right away.  If I buy one of the recent clamshell Zaurii (Dynamism or eBay), which ROMs could I use and still have OpieReader run?  Better yet, which ROMs will it run on without a lot of tweaking.  Has anyone tried OpieReader on the Archos PMA430?  Any chance it will work with the new Nokia 770 (Maemo platform)?  

Thanks in advance!
