Re: [NTLK] eMate vs. 2100

I bought a couple eMates off Ebay last year, thinking I could scavenge a good MP backup screen. Nope (the eMate screen is bigger. Thermostats, serial ports, and chargers are fine though).

The eMate is larger, and probably more robust than the Messagepad. If you have smaller hands, prefer typing--esp. on the go--and like the design, get one. (You can attach a full size keyboard to the MP, but you'll have cords.) The MP is much faster.

I much prefer the MP, and am grateful for Stephanie Mak's overclock and Daniel Padilla's audio out adaptor instructions. Incidentally, you can stuff both an overclock switch and an audio adaptor (line in/out) side by side into the serial port space.

OT: does anyone near SF have a dongle they want to sell? I won't be able to make one for a few months--bad neck. BTW, if anyone needs spare eMate parts . . .
