"Sharp will begin selling a Linux operating system-based
personal digital assistant (PDA) in the U.S. from the third quarter
this year, according to a report in the Saturday morning edition of
the Nihon Keizai Shimbun."
"The new Zaurus PDA, which will also support Java and will be
the first from Sharp that doesn't use the company's proprietary
operating system, will go on sale in Japan from the second quarter
and hit Europe around the end of the year and the remainder of Asia
in early 2002, said the report."
"We are still developing the new model so we don't have an exact
schedule," said Sharp spokeswoman Arisa Mori. She added that the
second-quarter launch date quoted by the newspaper was too early
and that pricing had also not been decided."
