"The developer edition of what will become the most advanced Linux consumer PDA to date is here; we've taken a closer look at the heart and the soul of Sharp's new SL-5000D.

Some of the points mentioned here may change by the time the consumer version, the Sharp Zaurus SL-5500, is released in the coming months."
