C1000/3x00 General discussions / Differences Between C3200 And C3100
« on: October 24, 2006, 08:16:41 pm »
this is a well worn topic, but you've pretty much summed up the differences.

The port is not fully functional and the levels are not within standard.  If you were just reading from the console, it would work.  IIRC I couldn't input properly.  You need the correct electronic drivers to bring it to within spec.  I keep my serialio cable for my 6000 and use usb/serial for the 3100.  The former setup drains less battery than the latter.

Software / Korgnanizer Pim / Kopi Still Alive?

actually kopi and kapi data files can be used with other apps or imported into other standard linux pim apps.  Since gpe is X11, it might not be too hard to migrate your data to new pim software for GPE.

In my opinion development gets a shot in the arm with every new Zaurus.  We haven't seen a new zaurus for a while so this lull is kind of expected.

Zautrix did a fine job of giving the community a very functional set of applications even if they were derived from other projects (kde, opie mail....).  I wish I had the talent to pickup the work that zautrix and anton (cacko rom) left off or help the OZ team with their continued efforts.

I know for my bluetooth card I do a cardctl eject and cardctl insert.  Put it in a script to run at startup from a suspend.  I can't remember where I put it exactly...

I'm glad to hear the good news.  It's a fine machine you have there.

You realize there are sites that sell the black cover from a 1000 so you can have the "all black look".  Now you got me thinking it would be a cool mod......

The only reason I would go for the C1000 would be its colour. It has more black!
I just love black more than the other fancy colours.

If price is not an object, then get the 3200.  Things are much simpler for me with my 3100.  When I first bought it, I wasn't so sure if the extra cost of the 4GB was worth it.  Now almost a year has gone by and I can definitely say that I'm glad that I got it.

If you are using for email and websites, then having the extra storage is good.  Sure you can use cards for storage, but I have more option with it built in.  My CF slot has a bluetooth card as permanent resident and the SD slot can be used for programs exclusively.  It is also better to use the HDD as swap space.  One reason is that the HDD is faster than the SD.  AFAIK the SD slots are still slow on the Z.  Though people worry a hard drive may damage easier, we're talking about a small mass disk and head.  It can stand a decent amount of G forces.  If the hard drive dies, it is proven that it can be replaced.  Streamline, trisoft and other venders could probably give a better idea of the stats on failures.

If the price is a concern, the 1000 is a very capable machine.

As my signature suggests, the 760 has similar flash/ram arrangement as the 1000.  I have seen both sides of the coin.

if you follow the links there are more detailed pictures.  The numbers are on a alternate case set on the top most "regular" keys just like the 5x00 and 6000 series.

weren't the drives from devices like the ipod disabled from working in a normal cf slot?  In the old days people were ripping drive from mp3 players like the Muvo(?) for cheaper prices than retail.  The manufacturer put in a protection to stop that.  I don't remember instances of people getting any ipod drives working in the Z.

It also might not be the battery, but the charging circuit.
