'[OT]: Protege Hacking'

I noticed an ad from Walgreens Drugstore for a little Palm-like
device - Protege Touch Screen Organizer - stores names, addresses,
etc, and sells for $19.95 [amazing]. Has an LCD display.

Of course, the "first" thing comes to mind is - is this thing
hackible? Anyone have one?

The LCD screen is probably special design, rather than generic
graphic-dots - which will of course minimize usability. Chip
is probably special design ROM'med, and not something more usable,
but who knows, maybe they put a PIC in there.

It doesn't look to me like it actually does hand writing recognition. Based
on the picture at
http://www.youcansave.com/palmpilot.html
its just a "look a like" of the palmpilot with a pen for tapping on an "on
screen" keypad. That is certainly not a graphics LCD in anyway. Might still
be fun to buy and crack open. If you could reprogram it, it might be useful
for a user interface.

I am certain it doesn't do HW recognition at $19.95, but
I also wonder how many people really uses their PPs for more
than what this jobber will do.

I suspect the LCD is hardwired/designed to perform only the
specific functions for this app, and will not so graphics,
but this thing does have touch screen input for data entry,
so ....... all in all, interesting at twice the price.
