GPRS, Bluetooth, Debian and my X40 [15 Mar 2005|09:17pm]
I've had this new X40 for going on 2 weeks now, and it's great. It's unbelievably light. The extended battery lasts for over 6 hours of reasonable use. It's the perfect size, and it's the best laptop keyboard touch-wise I've ever typed on.

I thought I would run to LiveJournal and post using my newly-working GPRS/Bluetooth setup. It took a few hours to figure out how to get this going, but it's working now and seems like it's going to do well for me. The speed right now seems to be roughly equivalent to dial-up speeds (actually, it feels faster, but that may just be my excitement at the novelty of it). So far I have successfully tested SSH and HTTP with it. The phone is sitting in the kitchen and I'm in the next room over. I'm using T-Mobile service.
