Excellent pictures!

I dont know how I feel about the white/chrome/silver. I like my nice plain all silver c860 and I also like the 860 ok/cancel buttons on the back.

I think as far as aesthetics, the only thing I like more is the change in the arrow keys. Besides that, I pass.

I wouldn't mind a 4 gig hd tho :-X

I think they're going for the iPod/iMac look as Sharp seem to be pitching the C3000 as a bit more of a media player as well as PMT.

I know the Picsel stuff is kinda like a handheld PDF format (a PC app converts many file formats into a 'unversal' format suitable for handhelds), but what is a Picsel-powered SD card as shown in the Conics pictures?

Fellow Z users,

I have been using a 5500 for almost three years now. Of particular importance is a terminal (minicom) and access to serial communications since I administer Sun boxen and the odd Cisco device.

I have noticed that the 3000 may not have an I/O port which can be used for serial communications. If serial communications are desired, there are USB-to-Serial converters but my fear is that I will not be able to send a break. My co-worker uses Gentoo on his laptop (no serial port) and he can't send a break...neither can my other co-worker using a different laptop (no serial port) and Winbloze...again with a USB-to-Serial converter...can't send break.

Is there a work around for this or is it a characteristic of the USB specification?
Does anyone know if the 3000 has an I/O port or if the USB port is now the preferred mode of communication?

Obviously I am looking to upgrade my 5500 but need fully functional serial communications.

Tumus,

I have just come across this page
http://www.sharp.co.jp/corporate/news/041015-b.html

It explains the function of the Picsel SD card, principally "Furthermore it mounts also the copyright protective function which prevents the illegality utilization of the software."

The translation from the Japanese is courtesy of Bablefish.

Bombur,

I have a Keyspan USA-19W USB serial cable. As I recall it was only in older versions of the 19W driver that sending breaks did not work. I used my USB serial cable often when I had my laptop and it worked well. I distinctly remember the issue of sending breaks not even being coded in the driver, but I thought that later revisions fixed it, because I would have little use for the device if that didn't work. So, use the source to be 100% sure.

Thanks for the reply Stupkid.

I will check the type and partnumber of the usb to serial converters my co-workers are using...it just might be the issue (I hope). Unfortunately, although I am a hard-core unix user, I do not actively program (read code)...haven't done it in 15 years so I am beyond rusty.

Still, looking at the source might be fun...

Great Pictures!

This also indicates ROM 1.45 JP - which answers the question risen some postings ago: it seems to be mostly compatible to the C860.

Nice find. Thanks.

So this suggests the C3000 supports the 'advanced' features of SD then...

Not too keen on the DRM side, but the encryption might be useful for keeping corporate/private data safe.

Oops. They should probably put a link to http://www.mirrordot.org on every Slashdot story since not many people know about it.

Poor Brett, all those slashdot hits, and look at the comments, they're all saying "where can I get one in the US?", "oh, I think dynamism will have them..." They should have posted something at the top of the review page about when conics was expecting to have them and at what price, that probably would have brought them more business.

I tell some information heard by WPC expo.

USB Host is effective. The plan person in charge of C3000 said that there is an actual result that the USB keyboard operated.
However, is it the problem of a power supply? It does not announce officially, saying that the USB host is still functioning officially.

Imageon100 is not using it. It is said that equivalent performance is realized by LCDC of PXA270.
It is what should be pleased with that the bottleneck of w100 was lost.

The serial port moved to the back. It is in the right of USB of a picture.

Surely there is various dissatisfaction.
Why wasn't PXA270 of 624Mhz used?
The memory is not increasing from 64Mb why.
Did not use half-penetration type liquid crystal why.
And in 3.7 inches, it is already small.
and so on...

However, even if based on them, I thought that I wanted C3000.

thanks.
