Snapping photos of business cards was one of the reasons I chose a business phone with cam
- even though OCR
has to be done off-board, sadly. Now, a 2D Barcode Reader would be a real treat, provided more and more business cards utilize QRcodes
in the near future! A sensible business feature for the top of the line Nokia business handset, I'd say...
The knack is to install the VMWare SCSI driver (included with VMWare Tools) before
booting the SATA or PATA harddisk and then to configure it in the VMX config file as follows:
scsi0:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.fileName = "win_raw.vmdk"
scsi0:0.deviceType = "rawDisk"
scsi0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0.virtualDev = "buslogic"
Switched from my OPIE palmtop
, that served me well for over two years to a Nokia Smartphone based on the Symbian Series60 platform. Mainly I wanted to consolidate my gadgetry into a more integrated device (in conjunction with a new mobile plan).
