Great, thanks for the efforts you are putting into this.

Yeah, should be easy to bring with us.

I will also bring the Samsung Omnia I'm recently hacking on. No real project
but a one man show right now. No project name either. :)
Aren't the above projects enough?

Great, I would need one.

Hmm, will think about this for OpenEZX and Gnufiish. Mickey, do you have PR
material for FSO around?

Will write a mail to openezx and gnufiish ml's FSO is here already. For a real
press release it's nothing interesting enough I feel.

Would be nice yes. I just need to get a G1 before. Perhaps I have luck at the
tarent booth lottery.
I would be really interesting if anybody with a Palm Pre device would be there
and give some insights on it.

Hmm, Daniel will not be there and neither me or mickey can perform the re-work.
It also seems as if the dust of getting the devices fixed has settled a bit. At
least Daniel is no longer swamped in evice but only has a few left to fix.
Is it needed?
I would prefer to spend more time on hacking instead.
