I think this is a great idea. I have recently ordered a J720 but have not yet 
received it. I too have been reading through the list archives so I'll be 
well prepared when I get it. It would be nice to have all of this information 
in one centralized/official location.

I've noticed mention of a modified/updated keymap for the J720 to make the 
keys work as they should. Is this included by default, or is this something 
the users will have to go find themselves? Is it still needed?

And, has there been any recent interest in developing audio support? This 
would be a nice gem to have as large collections of music can be accessed via 
shoutcast stream or a remote network filesystem/etc. I know Linux has this 
support, and the specifications are supposedly available, but I don't know 
anything about driver development.

I also have a somewhat offtopic question. I'd like to purchase a 1GB flash 
card for use with the J720. I'm reluctant to purchase one as of yet because 
I'm afraid I'll order the wrong type, if there are multiple types. Could 
anyone clarify this and possibly provide a model number/URL? I don't know 
much about CF.
