new toy ordered

I managed to resist for a while, but after thinking about it for a couple of weeks, I've cracked and ordered a Pandora, which is a tiny palm-top cum gaming console, with an OMAP3530 (ARM Cortex A8) running at 600MHz, a smidgen larger than a Nintendo DS.

I'm not really interested in the gaming side, but am thinking that now that DisplayLink seems to be somewhat supportable on Linux I'll be able to plug it into a decent monitor when I'm home, and that the 10 hour battery life and pocket size will be great when I'm not.

Hopefully it'll be built and shipped in time for Xmas.
