Hi Gunnar!

Answering your questions I expect you have 2008.08 installed. If not, try it 
out. It is still not really stable and perfect usable, but has some very very 
cool approaches to get there.

No GUI yet. Try alsamixer :)

In om-2008.08's Installer there is a package called qtopia-x11-ringtome-
profile. I tried installing it but it didn't show up... Perhaps you could give 
it a try. Else you could try settings it "The-Linux-Way". Have a look at 
/opt/Qtopia/etc/ if using 2008.08.

Sorry... Can't help you here.

install illume-config-illume. Rasters keyboard is ridiculously cool :)

Not yet... QTopia has some approach in it, but it didn't work for me. It seems 
that priority for this is not very high. Correct me if I'm wrong...

GPS actually works very good here. It gets the fix faster than any other GPS 
device I own. Make sure you installed gpsd and set DEVICE to "/dev/ttySAC1" in 
/etc/defaults/gps. Also make sure gpsd is running and that GPS is enabled in 
the graphical settings menu. Else you won't get any fix. It sounds 
complicated, but once everything is set up you can just enable/disable GPS via 
the settings menu.

Have fun!
