[beagleboard] Openmoko Beagle Hybrid

There is a new project to provide a 640x480 touch screen display
connection to the Beagle Board. This is the same display as used in
the Openmoko Freerunner, and the expansion PCB also connects some
peripherals (speaker, earset, microphone, buttons). Together with a
UMTS USB stick and a battery pack this becomes a mobile application
development platform.

Nice. Did you add an entry on BeagleBone Black Project Spotlight: Shield I/O - BeagleBoard as well?

And don't forget the EEPROM info to http://www.elinux.org/BeagleBoardPinMux#Vendor_and_Device_IDs as well so we can try to support it on the validation sw as well.

Hi,

I wonder, if it's possible to use the LCD from my dust covered gta01. From the
specs the LCDs looks the same, but I don't know much about the wiring,
connectors because I don't own gta02. Thanks for the info.

Not yet. But I will do.

Yes, I think they use the same display module. And, from schematics
the Neo 1973 and Freerunner have the same Hirose connector that we
use. So the only risk is that the LCM may have a different firmware in
its controller but this should be possible to find out through
comparing the sources of the Linux kernel for the 1973 and the FR. But
I remember that there have only been some #ifdefs to differentiate
between different GPIO ports used but not in protocols.
