Totally agreed with that.Compared to the Pandora the Pyra will be more able to do (more) multitasking. So the Pandora could do music, the Pyra will do music while gaming. Pandora could do web browsing, the Pyra will probably do browsing while gaming (for looking up stuff, walkthrough or a forum with recommendation for settings). This is I guess the biggest added functionality.
The mobile Internet thing is okay, but I would still prefer Wi-Fi. i think my Smartphone is the only thing I would use mobile broadband with anyway.You will also get some new parts so you can use internet on the road, but that is only a game-changer for people that aren't at home.
The Pandora did TV, but the Pyra will do HDMI monitors. So Pyra will also become a bit more serious if it comes to work-related applications and being a tiny laptop.
That sounds like ALSA being shitty. I don't remember why, but I've had that problem before with ALSA. Does the Pandora use PulseAudio? Even so, could happen with Pulse. Sometimes output on the terminal says that sound or ALSA resource is already used, or it says device or resource busy, or something like that. I really can't remember...I used to listen to music while testing out new games on my Pandora, until some releases started coming out that wouldn't play audio if music was already being played.
I will also most likely get the Wifi only model, but I generally do see some value for some who travel a bit.The mobile Internet thing is okay, but I would still prefer Wi-Fi. i think my Smartphone is the only thing I would use mobile broadband with anyway.
The Pandora doesn't, the Pyra will most likely will have it default.Does the Pandora use PulseAudio?
800*480 on such a small screen cannot be called "Low resolution", unless you then call everything around you, including your ipad and your television, low resolution as well.Low Resolution (800 * 480)
As far as I know there is no application that we could not port on Pandora because of its lack of RAM. 512 is plenty for most of what you want to do with it. I'd rather say the CPU itself is what is making things harder in the end, not the RAM.Vey small amount of RAM.
Same here. I dont understand why one would stop using it. I kind of stopped using it for browsing the web, but for many other purposes its still a perfectly fine device.Still using mine daily...
He probably means a Pandora can be bought from shop, you can't do that currently with a Pyra. (I think this the logical answer, but he then confused us by switching Pyra/Pandora from the topics starters question).What do you mean? Purchase a Pandora?
