I own the FR gadget now for 2-3 weeks, I think, and I'm so happy with it
and I use it in daily work as I did with my normal cellphone, a BenQ
Siemens S68, which I have returned already because I think the FR is
stable enough for me;
I can do what I want with it:
- I can SSH to the Linux and install or change what I feel fitting for
me or missing there;
- for me Wifi works now as it should;
- for me GPRS and PPPD together with my smaller laptop (a eeePC 900 on
which I have installed FreeBSD 7.0) let me go to Internet; I can use
the FR like a normal router box to Internet;
- I can even make phone calls and write SMS to my love
What do I need more at the moment?
Ofc, there are things to solve, for exmaple the power/duration of the
batery; I've bought an original 2nd one to not fall into the 'dead
battery' pitfall; and I've ordered the Minty kit to build one based on
AA batteries; ofc, there is a lot of other stuff todo or build; but this
belongs already to 'it would be nice if also ...';
So, if someone wants a cellphone like all teenies have them, one from
Nokia or Ericson, with a camara to take pictures in the subway, well
just go for it and buy it; if not stop screaming and make use of what
you have and see what we could do;
just my honest thoughts about;
