Hi, haven't been to this site for a long while, just curious, with the age of the smart phones do people still use a PDA? Thanks smile.gif

What's a PDA?

Don't use one anymore other than a Zaurus.....well, did use a Pandora for a while...

Too bad about them and especially the Zaurus, think a C4000 clamshell with built-in wifi and USB port would have been great.....

Anxious to see the new Pyra (gen II Pandora...) get released either end of this year or early next year.....

Even with my droid, I'm still using my C3100 for scheduling and such. I still love the keyboard of my Z.

In case some of you thought OESF had disappeared, well, as you can see, it's back again!

Come by and visit!

My current phone is a Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Having a monster screen means that you don't lose too much space when the virtual keyboard appears. I can use it with a USB OTG adaptor and use a keyboard, as well as a bluetooth keyboard.

I have a big memory card in it, which is partioned with about 4GB set aside with Debian installed, so since my phone is rooted, I can mount that and chroot in. I can even start sshd on it, and then ssh into my phone.

Sadly, there's been nothing Zaurus like for most of recent history, apart from the GPD Win. I should check if anyone posted that.

I purchased one of the GPD Win's so will be able to review for everyone when I get it (hopefully in a few weeks if they are on schedule).
