I agree PGAS... and I like it! Nothing like having something, and not wanting the newer stuff (as it's not much better)..

I would like usb host though........ What's the point of 128MB Flash?

Oh! You can put the whole OS on the FLASH, and thus you don't have the slow microdrive startup performance that bugs people with a c3000... that was a smart move by Sharp.

It looks like the biggest feature is that it includes a bunch of software that used to be sold separately.

I wonder if this is the surprise that TRISoft was talking about appearing in 17 days?

But only by extra CF_Cards mad.gif
On the second page of the sharp-link they show the "Period of use" with a CF-WLan-Card!
I think the only changes are more Flash and more japanese software.

well, it's a pleasant surprise, but not overwhelming... I'd rather they upgraded the RAM than the flash, to be honest, if that's all they were going to do, as more RAM would make a big difference to performance for some hungry applications.

and they missed the opportunity to upgrade the internal drive to a 5GB, which would have been trivial.

sigh.

my 860 is safe, and will remain mine... until a "3200" or something comes out with at least one wireless option.

bummer, no built-in wifi... I was really hoping for that sad.gif

I think I'll keep my 1000... the 4gb microdrive would be nice (especially with the 128mb flash), but I'm still worried about having moving parts in a handheld.

Sharp seems to be going in smaller upgrade increments with each iteration of the Zaurus releases now.

So essentially this seems to only a move from 16MB Flash to 128 MB Flash and White cover to Black cover. The sofware additions of course dont count much for US and Europe imports.

Well I am content with my C1000.

I have a 4GB microdrive plugged into my C760... I've used it for more than a year, and have dropped it more times than I'd like to admit, and have yet to have a problem with it.

If, like me, you're paranoid about losing data, you can always do like I do... keep a backup of all the important stuff on a RAID array, and use something like unison to keep it in sync.

cool, so with the C3000 & C3100 you can use the USB host function to have a USB-IDE adaptor, and then carry round a small double disk pack with RAIDed disks!

doesn't this make the Z a little bit big?
