PDA Goodness

[ #4337 ]

I was out shopping at Staples last night, and came across what might be the most beautiful thing I've seen in a while - the newest model of the Sharp Zaurus (SL-5500). For those of you who haven't heard of it (like I hadn't - I must have been living in a cave), this Zaurus is freaking awesome. It's a standard Palm-ish-sized 240x320 65,536 color reflective LCD (very well backlit), which runs on a Linux 2.4 (embedix) kernel with a Java-based GUI front-end. It's incredibly slick. I fell in love at first sight, and just had to have one. My wallet's not too happy, but damn if I am! :)

I've already got the 802.11b CompactFlash module ordered, too. Built-in driver support with GUI configuration, just plug it in, and boom, it works. Nice.

  • I had a teeny play with one at my local Fry's Electronics the other night. Unlike you I somehow resisted the temptation to buy one. That was a bloody difficult decision mind you and in all honesty I'm probably going to go back and buy it :-)
