I got a friend of mine to buy it for me and send it over. It took 3 days to arrive using priority fedex.

Originally I wanted to get the D-Link one as well, but HT did not have it in stock (nor did anyone else) and I was in a hurry to play with it so I went for the Netgear one instead.

Anyway, I've been using it non stop trying to install all the stuff that works on it. I am so happy I got Firefox working on it now!

Hey, nice to know I am not alone

Maybe if there is a few of us we can pool resources and order some nifty stuff together like the Zaurus mug from trisoft.  
http://www.trisoft.de/en_funshopartikel.htm

I can't justify to buy the mug and pay more in postage and handling than the mug is worth

I already have the stuffed Penguin from everythinglinux.com.au otherwise I might have bought the mug and the penguin ...

i cant belive how fast this thing is, i had a dell axim x30 at 624Mhz and it seems like a snail in comparison, however i doo miss the wifi and bluetooth but thats what the usb port is for

i already plan to upgrade the drive to 6GB and use the 4 gig card in the CF slot

glad i made the change

Guys, if you want a nifty mini a USB adaptor, the iRiver one is much better than the GoldX one. It gives you just what you want, the mini usb a and its small. This is how it looks like: http://users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/PMC-USB-adapter.jpg
Look for a USB host cable for the iRiver PMP-120 series Digital Media Player.
This site offers it:

btw, if you are considering ordering one, or are able to find one somewhere else, buy me one too and I'll pay you back
