"The handheld for consumers will offer 64MB of memory,
the sources said, while the one for developers will feature 32MB in
order to offer them a lower price. With the exception of memory,
the two handhelds will have the same features. The devices will use
an Intel 206MHz StrongARM processor. Their displays will offer a
resolution of 320 pixels by 240 pixels and will support 16-bit
color. The devices will also feature CompactFlash and Secure
Digital expansion slots, as well as handwriting recognition and a
keyboard with a sliding cover.
The devices are also expected to use Tao Group's Java virtual
machine, which allows them to run Java applications, and to include
an Opera browser.
Sharp's new devices will target the business market and will
cost between $400 and $600."
