I thought most GP2X fans would be more than slightly interested in a new PDA that a bunch of guys on the OESF forum are in the early stages of putting together. The preliminary specs include:

500+Mhz iMX3 processor
between 128MB and 256MB of DDR mem
Jtag and serial
Up to 2GB of Flash (probably 512MB built-in)
VGA screen
Backlit Keyboard
trackball
USB 2.0 Host (as we can do video sound and nearly everything from here)
Video out (HDMI)
2x Jog Dials
Bluetooth
Accelerometer
GSM/GPRS
2 SD card slots
Microdrive ar CF mem on ATA port
fpga (for use in conjunction with the docking station)
Docking station (not backpacks but a small station for it to charge from with USB hobs and whatever (vga out?))
Back packs)
CF+ (a CF slot basically)
Wifi
Auxilary Display + buttons
3G
Camera
DVB-T/H
USB Client (I never use it and there are already better options above here to connect to a network like 10/100 usb adaptor)
UWB

The hardware design will be released under a GPL license or similar and it will run Linux!

But do you think the price of it won`t be too high? The components alone will be something over 500 bucks as far as I followed the thread that you linked. Really a cool idea though.
