“Sharp has added a hard-disk drive to its latest Zaurus PDA, and
is now considering selling the Linux-based device abroad.
“The SL-C3000 PDA contains a 4GB hard-disk drive from HGST–
about 30 times bigger than its previous PDA model, the SL-C860,
which had 128MB of Flash memory.
“‘We wanted to put in a hard disk before, but they were too big
and too heavy,’ said Hirohide Nakagawa, group general manager of
Sharp’s information and communication systems business
