Is there any way to retrofit an extrnal keypad + lcd to the gemini PDA?

The new cosmo communicator is , probably largely based upon the Gemini internals, is there any way to add an external LCD + keypad to this?

Extremely unlikely, I'd have thought.

Judging from the prototype, the whole top casing is different. And inside, the main board will need new connections for the screen, buttons, camera, &c. (And that's without considering the different processor and other chips, NFC antenna, further Android customisation, &c.)

So no, I'm fairly sure you won't be able to 'upgrade' a Gemini without replacing most of it. Sorry...
