    I think it could be useful to put a couple of buttons down the side


    possible three down each side.


    These could be assigned as:

    1. Quick toggles (mute/wifi/etc) perhaps toggle between launcher/UIs?
    2. media buttons (as they would be accessible when the lid was closed)
    3. shortcuts to common applications
    4. Unmount SD card/etc buttons
    5. anything else...

    Would love something like this, myself, especially the media-buttons, since Deadbeef is perfectly happy to assign any keyboard buttons that it recognises to those functions, for example.


    That said, I must admit, I thought from the title that this would be a post about that "buttons with embedded LCDs" idea from a while back! :p

    A while ago there was a thread about making a peripheral that slots on the back on the pandora with media controls, I did make but completely botched my own peripheral that added l2 and r2 for the playstation but also added a back and skip button to my media.


    You could always elaborate on this and add more keys.

    No clip-on system can come close to the neatness of a few more buttons built in to the case...

    I agree completely, but clip on may be the only option unless you fancy taking a dremel to your pandora, built in media controls sounds like a pandora 2 feature.


    Otherwise, maybe an inline control?
