"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.
Sharp recently released the developer edition< of their new
Linux-based PDA, the Zaurus SL-5000D - and the company, by
positioning it as the Linux answer to Pocket PC and Palm OS
devices, is trying to take the business and "prosumer" markets by
storm. We take a closer look at the SL-5000D, both from the point
of view of a Linux-based system and a PDA.
The SL-5000D is a rather large device, compared to other PDAs on
the market Bear in mind, the software for the Zaurus SL-5000D is
still in development, so it is a moving target for now. 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."
