Would it be possible to map it so that the volume keys work in their intended function when the home key is held?

Can't see why not, but probably have to hack the source to do that. If Cyanogen were ported, wouldn't take long.

Buttons are pretty easily solved.

One other data point, the partition structure of this device looks to be very similar - the same? - as other android devices.

I'm really short on time right now or I'd take a crack at getting Cyanogen up. Anyone else interested in hacking this?

Anyone already working on it?

Has anybody been thinking about how to get audio input support? I would love to be able to make voice calls or use skype on this thing. I know there isn't a mic built in but might it be possible to input one? Via headphone jack USB ala myTouch or Wing, or possibly on the potential bluetooth the NC might be hiding? I have ordered one but I am in Ecuador until February so I can't help with it sitting in my house in the states 2000 miles away.

Maybe. I have a theory that some sort of audio is available on the proprietary jack. The floating voltage I see on 2 of the pins could be for mic phantom power. That's what this thread is for: hardware observations. Anyone else want to dig into it?

more information about hardware
Hi,

I dig in kallsyms and i find 3 things :
The accelerometer is a kxtf9
The touchscreen is a cytts ( www dot cypress dot com/?rID=44238)
The board seems to be named "boxer"

We need the panel and backlight drivers (and few gpios) and we wiil able to build a kernel from scratch. Other hardware is pretty common with the omap3 platform.

More to come ...

Did you see the ZDNet teardown? They had some closeups with chip numbers there, not sure if it might help.

Interesting. I have the same GPU (OpenGL) information on my DroidX and yet the NC has "Frame buffers: unsupported" whereas its "supported" on DroidX.

Also noted that the Sensors section is fairly sparse (again in comparison to my DroidX)
