If anyone wants to donate one to me for research purposes, I don't
mind. I was going to get one, but bought a GP2X instead. Awkward to
add WiFi to, and no touch screen (though the HW supports it
directly). But easy to program for. I still might get one. Does it
have USB host easily? I wish it had a PCMCIA/cardbus slot.
