C1000 -> No Internal Hdd Option
« Reply #60 on: April 27, 2005, 07:16:15 pm »
I just found out that I have a spare SAMSUNG K9F1G08U0M that is soldered to small PCB (I think it was originally a 128MB USB flash drive).
The NAND chip is good, it still works fine if connected to USB bus.

Personally, I woudn't recommend such an upgrade unless you are ready to take risks of ruining your Zaurus, but in case anyone feel lucky and want this chip, you can contact me offline.

its been mentiond by one pearson that they put a bluetooth adaptor inside a c1000 (could have been in thisthread) but they have yet to mention how they did it and i am quite intrested as well

it would be good to have a usb ost and client port at the same time (pxa270 has 4 usb ports, 3 host, 1 client, one of the host ports can be muxed into place of the usb client port (basically means use the client pins) , the other 2 from emory arnt balanced and so dont meet the usb spec but can still be used for on bard hardware with usb interfaces)

so it is doable that guy just needs to provide some pics to prove it or tell us where the usb host port comes out to so we can solder onto it

Ahh, if you mean posts by maxq, then I 'm with you - it brings more questions than answers.

I have to confess to not reading every post in this topic, so pardon me if this has been suggested. Seems that we're missing the forest for the trees here . Now if Sharp would just build in Wifi and/or Bluetooth into the 1K at the least, then you'd still be able to use both card slots for diskspace, and be able to download Gb's of your favorite tunes directly.
I mean, I have a 4Gb microdrive in the CF slot of my 1K, and a 1Gb SD card in that slot, giving me 5Gb of storage. Now it's not like I'm going to be installing Bloatware from M$ or anything, so how much diskspace is too much? If I want the entire collection of British rockers? available to me, there's always the option of buying more than 1 set of CF and SD cards, right?

Am I missing something here? Or are we just not going to satisfied until we can carry a Cray around in our shirt pocket?
