Mobira Dataman

My modding area after some modding action. Yes, it is our dinner table as I don't have any "proper" place to mod at the moment. My wife really loves me for this... or not... So, if you can help us in any way by making modding easier on us, please, contact me asap! ;)

All the video and audio related connectors are located nicely at the bottom of the Dataman.

First test with everything connected to the Dataman. Only 8 bit colors as there are no proper display drivers installed yet. One can also spot the old Xbox1 that this setup will be replacing.

The first public appearance for the Dataman was at the Assembly Summer '09 event. I'm not sure if the younger visitors got the idea behind the mod but the older visitors that had actually used the phone were very amused. :)
