 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi All,

i'am fairly new here.
I have a little bit experience with the arduino now.
But now my Question. I have an old Google G1 (handy) laying around.
It is fully functionable. Is it possible to use some of the parts of the G1 for the Arduino.
Maybe Display, WIFI module, Bluetooth module?

The simplest way to reuse is probably to buy some  bluetooth for Arduino and let them send data to each other.
There are Android Bluetooth terminal apps that can be used to control the Arduino.

I thought more on disassemling the G1 and reuse the different parts. Wouldn't that be possible?

Don't know the G1 but I imagine that it will be quite a challenge to harvest the chips in the first place, and reuse them from the Arduino without having datasheets (assumption)

But the proof is in the pudding test, so hack the device and give it a try

I don't think you connected the grounds, Dave.

Apart from the display, the components will be almost impossible to harvest and reuse.
