http://www.sharp.co.jp/ws/function/spec.html

Do you think this device would boot a zaurus linux rom?

I can't read Japanese either but most of it is guessable:

CODE
Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 software for Pocket PC 日本語版

Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 software for Pocket PC Japanese version

CODE
Intel PXA270 プロセッサ 416MHz

The Japanese probably means CPU

CODE
640×480ドット、3.7型 65,536色 モバイルASV液晶(バックライト付)

640x480 pixels, 3.7", 65K colours, ASV LCD

CODE
Flash128MB(本体システム領域等含む)/SDRAM64MB(ワークエリア)

128MB flash, 64MB ram smile.gif

CODE
PHS(W-SIM)対応/ワイヤレスLAN(IEEE802.11b準拠)内蔵

Uses PHS, builtin wlan

CODE
miniSD カードスロット×1、W-SIMスロット×1

1 x miniSD slot, 1 x W-SIM slot

CODE
USBポート(miniBコネクター)、イヤホンマイク端子(平型)

No usb-host smile.gif

CODE
リチウムイオン充電池(EA-BL12)、ACアダプター(EA-75)

Uses EA-BL12 batteries, and EA-75 AC adaptor

CODE
約5時間

5 hours talktime

CODE
約200時間(電波状態ランプ消灯時)
約100時間(電波状態ランプ点灯時)

This refers to 200 and 100 hours standby time, no idea what the differing conditions are

CODE
約133万画素

Seems to be a 1.3M pixel camera

CODE
幅 約70×高さ 約130×厚さ 約26(本体閉時、突起部除く)

Dimensions 70mm x 130mm x 26mm

CODE
約220(タッチペン、充電池含む)

Weight 260gm (including battery?)

CODE
USBケーブル、CD-ROM、ACアダプター、取扱説明書、ソフトケース、その他

Comes with USB cable, CD-ROM, AC adaptor and even some manuals smile.gif

YMMV

Do a search on "W-Zero3" and you'll find several threads where it has already been discussed.

Interestingly enough, the VP of R&D at Sharp Japan who initially worked on the Z project is the man who headed up the W-Zero 3.

Just to note: a new model has been released, a slimmed down version that swaps screen-size for a phone keypad:
http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2006/07/04/s...hotness-redefi/

Also worth noting is that at the announcement, the Sharp representative apparently mentioned that Sharp intends to continue the Zaurus line as well.

Ahh.. but will they update the software? (especially will they release a concurrent update for existing zaurii??) I guess that matters less and less with 3rd party development, but still...
