Hi folks,

Lots of talk today about linux mobiles on the internets. Apparently 
Trolltech has ported Qtopia to the neo1973 linux mobile. Interesting 
news in itself.
Even more so the neo1973 seem to be a very interesting device in itself.

I only very quickly glanced through the specs on the openmoko site, it 
looks to be a very capable device with interesting possibilities.

Apart from pretty much all mobile devices I know it seems to have USB 
host-controller possibilities which should make it possible to connect 
an USB soundcard to it. Would make a splendid recording/playback device.

Also, on this page: 
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Neo1973_Audio_Subsystem there are some 
schematics of the audio hardware which also seem interesting. Possibly 
there's both stereo line in and stereo line out, the inputs seems to 
route through some "Voice codec" "thing" though...

Anyone know anything more about this device?
