I also have one of these, altho it is a developer model with only 32m of ram.
I've been thinking of buying one of those fance expansions for it.
(One odd thing with the model I have, is that there is an audio recorder app,
but no microphone.)
However, I don't generally tinker with hardware(I'm a programmer). However, I
