    INQ1 as a dongle with a linux netbook


    Hi, this is a bit of a newbie question. I own an INQ1 mobile phone, which can be used as a dongle to connect to the internet. I have been offered the chance to buy a cheapish EEE pc 701, (which I think runs Xandros?)

    If I brought a 701, would I be able to use the two together?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You should be able to. The Linux PPP support for dialup connections should be just fine, and the system should see the phone as a USB modem. In any case, you just might want to visit the INQ1 web site and see what they say about using the phone as a USB modem.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
