My first impression of the device - it's a Palm IIIx with 1000 times more storage, but poorer connectivity and fewer applications. I have an electronic subscription to a couple of science-fiction magazines which I currently read on my old Palm IIIx. It's showing its age so I have been looking for a replacement for a while now. The Wikireader (with its sunlight-readable screen and AAA batteries) would fit this category as soon as an e-book reader application is available. Some other PDA applications like a calculator and a memo pad would be nice but I can live without them. If/when an e-book application is developed, it would be nice to have an SD-card image of the Project Gutenberg archive. I also have a question - what happens to equations and graphs in Wikipedia articles (e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bessel_functions)? Are equations rendered graphically or are they only shown in markup language? Are SVG images supported? _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
