>btw, have you or anyone else on the list taken a look at how these

Nope, but if I had an N800 available to me I'm sure it'd be a quick
port target.

The platform is similar enough ..

>GNU/Linux/Debian/Gnome based, somewhat more powerful ARM cpu, more

Try not to discount the GP2X' second ARM core, which is quite a fun
hack, and also remember that the GP2X' Linux firmware is far less
bloated than that of Nokia (almost painfully so), in order to provide
a much lighter, smaller, faster footprint for game developers ..

Not to discount the Nokia devices, nor any of the thousands of
ARM-based/Linux-compatible handheld, portable computing systems,
currently flooding the market... the point is, the GP2X is available,
cheap (circa $150), light, battery-powered, and already building up a
huge suite of fun applications worth the effort to get involved in ..
and I think the GP2X is far more hackable than Nokia would be
comfortable people doing with the N770/N800 (i.e. there are already
full firmware replacements out there for the GP2X, including quite a
few non-Linux ones..)

>Some hacking is needed as well to get USB host mode working

All thats needed with the GP2X is a cable/docking station, and these
are easy to obtain. Host mode works like you'd expect it to work on
a Linux-based system ..

>(the device can't supply power to slave USB devs)... but you do have

TV Output?

>Not as cheap as gp2x is though...

Definitely not. I've got 3 GP2X's for the price I would've had to
pay for a single N800 .. Still, exciting times for all Linux/ARM
hackers, and even more exciting times for those of us pressing such
systems into audio processing uses ..

{3 GP2X's running g_midi/g_audio [total integration] == cheap and
effective sub-effects processors for the DAW..}
