Hi all,

One of High Priority goals of Breezy is to have all the existing,
functional PDA software well-integrated and working ouf of the box.[1]

While we cannot support all existing PDA/handheld devices available in
the market, it would be a great help for developers to know what people
are using and how they integrate their devices with Ubuntu (Warty,
Hoary, or even Breezy if you live on the edge).

I have created a simple wiki page for this purpose called PDATesting
(http://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/PDATesting)[2] . If you have tried,
tested, or currently using a PDA with Ubuntu to synchronize your PIM
data, install applications, and other functions possible, you can add
your hardware at the PDADeviceList wiki page
(http://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/PDADeviceList). Make sure you also list
issues you have encoutered during testing.

Please add your contact info so we can communicate with you in case we
have specific questions about your setup. At the moment, PDA Support in
Linux is in a state of flux, its an exciting time to dive in, with the
sexy gadgets coming out from device manufacturers (convergence comes to
mind). PDAs don't die, they just evolve. We'd like to see Ubuntu not
just computer-friendly, but also PDA-friendly as well :)
