Operating System Support
Natively, they run Windows CE 2.11 H/PC PRO 3.0. There is some resources on the net to suggest NetBSD potentially runs, but I have not succeeded in this endeavour. I'm looking into the feasability of porting Linux onto these devices.
A look inside
I ended up pulling my unit apart tonight... finally got fed up of the wobbly power socket, so I thought I'd take a look. The power socket was fixed very easy... The solder connections were worn... in fact, I suspect a manufacturing fault. Not to worry though, a quick jab with a soldering iron soon fixed up what the ravages of time had slowly worn away.
Pulling up the keyboard, you'll see the top surface of the motherboard... shown in this photo.
