I've been searching through numerous sites searching for a decent PDA to
get. I am in *desperate* need of one, but that's another story.
While scanning M$'s CE site for info, I found that it runs on the MIPS
R3910 and R4000 chips, as well as the Hitachi SH-3. What I'm wondering is
if it'd be somehow possible to construct a Linux ROM for one of these
devices. I *really* want to do this if it's possible, which it seems to
The apparent top-of-the-line PDA is the HP620LX, which is stated to be
built around a "High Performance 32-bit RISC Processor Running at 75 MHz".
I don't know much about the Hitachi and MIPS chips, but does this sound
like a MIPS?
The advantage to this device is that it has most of the features I'd want,
including color, PCMCIA, IrDA, serial, audio, and a color screen. It also
has 16MB of RAM and 10MB of *user replaceable* ROM. That means that I
could theoretically construct a Linux system for my needs, burn it to a
ROM, and use it.
Anyway, is what I'm thinking even remotely possible? If so, let me know
and I'll make sure I get a PDA with the right processor. I want to be
using Windoze CE as little as possible...
