A PC World article entitled “Gadgets Galore: Newest PDAs, Players, Phones” mentions the two recently announced models of Sharp Electronic's Zaurus Linux-based PDAs, the SL-B500 (aka SL-5600, the update to the current SL-5500 model that's… available in the US and Europe) and the SL-C700, the model with a larger keyboard and 640×480 (VGA) resolution swiveling LCD display. Although there's been no official word from Sharp, the PC World article states that the SL-C700 is coming to the US early in 2003 . . .
” . . . The C700 runs on a 400-MHz Intel XScale processor, and comes with 64MB of flash memory and 32MB of synchronous dynamic RAM. The device is equipped with slots for Secure Digital and Compact Flash cards. It's priced at $500 and is scheduled for U.S. release at the Consumer Electronics Show in January . . .”
