6000 - Tosa / The back of SL-6000
« on: April 21, 2004, 11:23:02 am »
Has anyone noticed at the back of the SL-6000, the speakerphone and Mic are placed so that you can almost use it as a phone(speaker phone on top, mic on bottom)?

I am really debating whether I should buy the expansion sleeve right now or wait to see if they will come up with new ones with maybe a GSM/GORS module? (wishful thinking)


Software / Opera to display Japanese?

Hi all,

Got my SL-6000 yesterday. The screen is simply amazing and makes web surfing so much more \"civilized\".

What do I need to do to get Opera to display Japanese characters? Or for that matter, Chinese characters?

I seems to remember Toshiba announced they will have an upgrade for e805 pretty soon to update it to the latest PPC edition. One of the benefit is that it will support 640x480 full time. Interestingly, the only main difference between e805 and Sl-6000 are the OS and the keyboard.

Thanks. That definitely tilt the scale.



Yes, the SL-6000 screen is REALLY nice. I have an iPAQ 5450 and the SL-6000\'s screen blows the 5450\'s away.

I have been contemplating to get a Sl-6000 for a while since my 5500 is getting a bit old. One of thing about 6000 everyone is raving about is the screen. I am curious how much better is it compared to an Ipaq (which arguably has the best screen in the market) and Toshiba e805 (4\" screen)?

One thing I noiticed about the screens on 5500 and my Sharp laptop is that it lacks the \"warmth\" of a very good LCD.In the case of 5500, it\'s too dark w/o backlite and in the case of laptop it can be turned very bright but the images got washed out. When I look at the LCD on a Sony laptop, the image has very good color saturation even the backlite is turned to max. I hope this is not true with their CG silicon tecnology.

Since I am not a Linux guru, one of the major justification is the brilliant screen that will make using the machine a pleasure(The expansion sleeve was also a big thing but at close to $200 a pop is a bit excessive for me). But if the existing Ipaq or Toshiba e805 can match the screen of the SL-6000, I think I can wait a bit longer to see what to get.

The battery is integrated. But the stereo speakers setup must be a first.

Since you are trying to find the MAC address of your phone, can\'t you find out that through your phone? For the Siemens S56 I have, I went to Bluetooth menu, click on \"My BT name\". It will display both the name and the MAC address.

I just got my Ambicom card to work after giving it up two weeks ago. Hope this might help:

-when you type \"sdptool browse\", do \"sdptool browse |more\" instead becasue the output is more than one page long. The MAC address is on the first line so I missed it. But I was able to see the MAC address of my mobile (Siemens S56) throught the phoen itself so I never thought twice. That\'s why I didn\'t know my phoen has TWO channel numbers: channel 1 for \"Serial\" and Channel 3 for \"voice gateway\". For the longest time, I have channel 3 in rfcomm.conf file. Instead, it should be channel 1.

-In the network dial-up applet, change the flow control from 1 sec to something longer (I set it at 35 sec now). I don\'t knwo if this actually matters but it looked as if helped when I set up the Irda dail-up for the same phone.

Good Luck and thanks to Tumnus and everyone that helped out.
