"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."
