I'm too lazy to solve this dilemma but, as always, welcome others to solve
it for us. :) Somewhere along the way I ran across a blackbox config file for
Lignux on the J720 but I haven't been able to find it since.

I use the novatelwireless gprs card and it works fine, for the most part. I
think the local carrier changed something when they went from 'beta' to
'production' so now I have to update my firmware again.

I have a Memorex 256MB card and it's dandy. I also have a "Muse 128MB"
card and it wishes is could suck goat testes but isn't good enough even
for that. Personally, unless I could try them in the store, I wouldn't
buy anything but Memorex or Sandisk.

actually, I was thinking about a USB keyboard but I'm betting the J720
is a USB Device, not host. Or heck, a USB Mouse... but ah well. I know
the intent is to be portable but sometimes you just want a real keyboard
