Specification Of "new" Linux Handhelds
« Reply #46 on: July 07, 2005, 03:47:23 am »
I was just reading through this post.  I think that another linux PDA that is effectively like a YOPY or Zaurus wouldn't be that compelling to the mainstream.  I personally would like another Nokia Internet PAd or Simpad SL4 like device.  These are the specs I would go for:

Dimensions:     7.1 x 10.4 x 1.1 in (180 x 263 x 28 mm)   
Weight:            2.2 lbs (1 kg)   
Processor:            600 MHz Intel XScale or 800MHz Transmeta Crusoe   
Operating System: Qtopia   
Memory           :256 MB RAM and 64 MB Flash
Display           :8.4 inch TFT  800 x 600 dpi - 32-bit color   
Input/Output        :Touch screen
                           :1 x USB Host
                           :Integrated Bluetooth (optional)
                           :2 x PCMCIA Type II card slot (full CArdBus)- must have
                           :1 stereo + mic jack
                           :Microphone
                           :Speaker   
Drivers for PCMCIA wireless LAN cards (choose 3 types)
Battery:   Lithium Ion batteries Up to 7 hrs per charge    

The challenging thing would be the price!
You would have to do it for $200 to $400 USD  

I would definitely buy it!
