Author: JT Smith

Rami Kassab writes "Sharp has announced their new Zaurus SL-5500, which will be released to the US early 2002. The Zaurus is a PC/PDA offspring featuring Sharp's high res color reflective LCD screen, a QWERTY keyboard, an Intel® StrongARM® 206MHz cpu, 64MB of standard memory, and an MP3 and MPEG1 multimedia player. Eventually, wireless Bluetooth modems will be available for purchase with the Zaurus. Sharp has chosen to embed Linux as the operating system along with Personal Java, an application development environment, in order to take advantage of the open operating environment. Linux and Java developers beware! Take an in depth look at Sharp's new Zaurus SL-5500 here."
