You may remember Hackndev.com, a community of developers which are porting Linux to Palm PDAs and smartphones. Well, it was quiet for some time. But this morning, I was checking their homepage and IRC channel and found something new about Treo 650 and Treo 680.
The most recent news on Hackndev states that Illume is running on the Treo. Illume is some kind of a mobile Enlightenment – a user interface, comparable to KDE, Gnome, etc.
The second news says that a developer could make and receive phone calls from his Treo 650 by sending raw commands to the GSM port. In his blog, he describes how to activate it, how to call or how to change different settings.
Sleep_Walker told me about the Treo 680 development success in the Hackndev chat (#hackndev on irc.freenode.net). Now, there is support for IrDA, Bluetooth, USB host and USB client. The USB host is used for connecting the GSM and the Bluetooth module internally. Downloads are not availible yet.
