    Beagleboard anyone?

    Stumbled across http://beagleboard.org/ last night... Somewhat surprised there's been nothing posted here about it...

    I'm not so much of a techie, but I'm having some bad idears after an evening of reading...

    Must ask those who understand this hardware stuff a bit better - how would one connect one of the typical 7/8.4" (lilliput etc) touchscreens to it? USB part is easy - but that whole HDMI plug has me stumped?

    What do you guys think of this lil board?

    no, VGA is unsupported on this board, there is no analog output! only LCD with DVI-D/HDMI input can be connected!

    (there is an S-Video connector on it, but its picture quality is too low)

    its not an x86 compatible board! you can not run windows on it, only special linux ports... and its processor is a bit slow, might not enough for divx decoding, navigation, etc... i think you should be a real professional on both hw and sw side to use it...

    Yeah; it's not x86 - it's OMAP3; which does limit it in operating systems (linux and Windows CE notably). Not sure what you mean about a slow processor - go see the youtube videos; seems to play videos quite nicely - definitely enough power for most needs.
