Let's get a 8000mah battery instead.
Can confirm, considered the possibility that it would look like garbage, still want it now!
Honestly, if you can't be bothered carrying a couple of accessories or cheap phone with you, I see absolutely *no issue* with wearing a discrete bluetooth earpiece.
If that's too much, then open the lid and use the speakerphone.
Considering using the OMAP5 for the neo?
P.S. I loved the openmoko
I'm not looking for a good phone experience, I'm looking for a portable computer that I can occasionally use as a phone.
And that's what you'll get. He's merely saying it's not worth the costs for something that would likely be listed as a con for the device in reviews.
What would they say? Why did they add this here? I wanted to have to open my Pyra to listen to music, record and be force to use a headset, but this is preventing me from doing so.
No, they'll say: "For something that tries to be a phone, it does a shitty job of it."
Sometimes it's better to not try at all than to try and fail. That way you can direct your attention and effort to things that are more likely to succeed.
Speaking of phone functions via headset, any idea if headset buttons would work? I think the buttons just short the mic pin to ground or something. Could Pyra detect this?
Could it? Yea, probably.
Will it support it when it ships? Nah, you'll probably see it added later due to homebrew efforts.
Wow the phone topic is quite popular by the looks of it. I wouldn't even think of getting one for phone purposes. And I am sure that everyone who is planning to get the Pyra already has a phone of some sort. I highly doubt that using it as a phone will really be that big of a deal...
These days, most people who buy a new phone already have an older phone which still works perfectly fine. That's completely irrelevant to them.
That's true. I'm not saying they wont, I am sure they will use it at a phone. It is just interesting that it is such a popular topic. Just recently someone set up a poll about it. I think it will be a pretty neat feature to be able to use it as a phone, but I personally probably wouldn't...but that's just me.
My phone is 4 years old. It's pretty much time for an upgrade anyway, but the number of phones with physical keyboards these days is effectively zero.
Well, the Neo900 will have one, right?
Oh woo! The Neo900 will be using the PLS8! First time I checked I remember they were using something else that didn't support my carrier but either I misremembered or that has changed.THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!
Glad I was able to be of help.
I would probably still prefer the Pyra over a Neo900, if it were an option, but in the absence of that I'm glad I might at least have some kind of option eventually.
Wow! I am extremely interested in this project. One thing that I did want to use the Pandora for but never got around to, is a portable studio, specifically recording in a club/venue. Will the Pyra have a Line In and Out or would I have to use a USB soundcard?
