Do It Ourselves
« on: October 19, 2007, 07:17:23 am »
People have discussed here many times building a device to replace the Zaurus.

Here is something which could be the core of it. We just need a few extra components and some nice boxes...

I wonder how hard it would be to fit that in a Zaurus shell?

looks great till you add up the price with all the features and the mark up on single units (2.5x)

work is under way, there is a new guy on board who i have been talking to and has really gotten the ball rolling again, time will tell.

i think by the time its done there will be more powerful units but i think the feature set of this design will make up for it, that and the curveballs i am throwing into the design, as i have said in private i am building this machine to last. i refuse to skimp on the quality of components

of course wait till i produce somthing first at the moment im all talk

I saw that the other day, and some guy discussing it said the same price thing. Unfortunate, really, as it looks like a fun product.

Compulab themselves did the OE support for it, so it already runs angstrom.
