Who's Getting A Pandora?
« on: October 14, 2008, 11:57:15 pm »
I'm just wondering how many of the folks around here are getting Pandoras (and polls are generally interesting).

I know I ordered mine as soon as I got the e-mail saying I could order it.
SL-C750- pdaXrom beta 1 (mostly unused)

So did I ...
HP-95LX -> HP Jornada 680 -> SL-C860 -> SL-C3100 -> Fuji u810 -> SL-C1000 -> HTC uni -> SL-C860 -> SL-C760.
March 12 2009 : Back because the Zaurus is one of a kind.
SL-C760 : pdaXrom
Pandora pre-ordered -> received and tested : great device but not my cup of tea -> sold.

Since I just bought my NetBook, and I'm not made of money, I'll have to wait.

When you get it, you'll have to let us know how it is! I'm honestly suprised this emerged from vaporware. I've been drooling over it for a while, not satisfied with the looks or specs of the GP2X models.

I missed the dealine, so I'll have to wait until 2009.  

I'll probably have to sell my SL-6000 for it though :-(   (for both money to buy the pandora, and to not have too many gadgets to carry around all the time.)

I had my preordered in the first day.  I am going to wait and see how much cool linux stuff it can do.  If it does a good amount I will most likely get rid of my C3000.

This is the one thing I'm worried about - that when my Pandora arrives my C3100 will be abandoned.

I'll just have to find other uses for it!
SL-C3100 with usb power mod running debian eabi
pdaXii13 still on the NAND for dualbooting
16GB SDHC! (a new one, after I sat on the old one and it went kaput)
D-Link 660 wifi, Socket Bluetooth rev H
External 9800mAh LiIon battery and slimline dvd drive
Homebrew microphone and remote

I would hope that all these new linux handhelds would somehow cross-fertilise activity developing for the zaurus. It's such a shame that the PSX emulator had such a short development life, otherwise the need for the pandora would be lessened.
