    Can you tell me how well it works in the cold? I saw the operating temperature to be only 14 degrees F. I'm guessing that the screen response time gets slow when cold, is there anything else that is affected by the cold on these?

    I'm loving the linux, and the price! Just really wondering about the coldness affecting it

    To be honest, I cannot! Here in Phoenix, Arizona it doesn't get that cold. I suppose I could stuff it in the freezer for a couple hours and see what happens.

    Yes i believe a member stated that before.. You asked for feedback in your second post so I gave it to you.. not all feedback will be good

    I would also argue that this is a "show off your project" sub forum.. and I'm not impressed by your setup.. mostly because it took very little imagination to do what you just did..

    I bet if you posted it in a different subforum your reception would be different.. like the newbie or wireless communication forum..

    I actually have several different rigs. This one was the most simple, but not intended to be the most impressive. I just wanted to show that the Nokia 770 internet tablet with Canola software for media (and maemo mapper for GPS, if you like that thing) will work easily.

    Sorry I was a little catty earlier. I've had a rough day.

    I have my N800 in hand.
    Not only is it vastly improved, but Nokia used it as an in-car navigation and entertainment device in their demos.
    Two links to watch:

    Update: The N800 is fabulous, but Canola hasn't been ported to it yet. Also, the device sports two SD card slots (full sized SD, so MiniSD, MMC, RS-MMC, MicroSD, etc. can be used with an adapter) for up to 4GB of storage. It's only a kernel upgrade away from supporting SDHC too.
