asks: "Since PDAs are becoming very common in today's world, is there any possibility of a PDA clone? A lot of the computer buying boom was caused by the AT clones that came onto the market. They brought prices down, they let people customize and get exactly what they wanted. This didn't really happen with laptops, so can it, and will it happen with PDAs? If not, perhaps a PDA designed by the people, for the people? An OpenPDA? I am currently contemplating on buying a PDA, and even though many of the PalmOS PDAs are similar, each one has its advantages, and disadvantages. I want to be able to pick and choose exactly what I want in my PDA."
Hmmm...interesting thought. Read on for more info...
This question sounds awfully similar to this one from iKev: "Remember
the Itsy ? Well, I was browsing the Web page today, and noticed that several
movies (.avi and quicktime) exist, that show off the power of this
device. There's the infamous Doom in action, java apps, e-mail, and the
rock'n'scroll input system. This is not vapourware, its the real deal,
so why oh why doesn't Compaq go full scale with this one? Oh, I forgot, they don't cater to the geek crowd. Has anyone been able to build one of these BTW? I would fork out for it in a flash... "
Might this project be an answer to both? Gratis to Tim Lord for the info.
