    the TuxMobil News digest for April 2004[1] has good news
    for Linux PDA, mobile phone and laptop users. Here is an
    extract of the most important or most interesting  messages.

|=| TuxMobil now contains  more than 2.000 links[2] to Linux laptop and
    notebook installation reports. Finally there is a solution to enable the
    external CRT on i855GM based laptops (e.g. Centrino), take the i855crt
    userspace driver[3]. A new issue (0.13.2) of the well-used Synaptics [4]
    touchpad driver is available and laptop_mode, which extends the battery
    life of your laptop has made it into Kernel 2.6.6[5].

|=| Trolltech has released the first issue of their Qtopia Phone Edition[6].
    For more information about Linux on or with cellular mobile phones see
    the TuxMobil - Mobile Phone Survey[7].

|=| Linux support for portable (digital) audio players is on the rise, many common
    players are already supported[8], e.g. you may soon expect release 1.0 of
    PodSync[9] to synchronize kabc and kaddressbook with an Apple iPod.
