Developing GTA04 internals for a Nokia N900?
Editor: Ryan Abel
Discussion started last week about a new GTA04 board based around the N900 case and peripheral (keyboard and LCD) parts: Now that we rather would like to use an available and cheap LCD rather than the last few dozen of existing spare parts for gta02, the argument counts in favour of ME from big companies. There's a rather huge community around Nokia N900 that is eagerly awaiting any successor with most of the properties exactly like the N900, regarding hw-kbd, resistive touchscreen etc. Just pretty please with faster CPU (still OMAP!), more RAM, and more sturdy USB port. I'd think THAT would be a good project to place a new board into an available old case and screen.
Upgraded internals for the N900 would definitely be an enticing proposition, as there is no proper successor to the N900, with hardware keyboard and a resistive touchscreen, on the market (nor is there likely to be one).
