I'm selling my C3K with following:
Original box, manuals, CD, charger, stylus, etc.
Ambicom WL1100C-CF (Prism chipset)
Socket BT (Rev G) including PCMCIA adapter and leatherett case
Extra EA BL08 battery (not the 1800 mAh 'A' revision but the original 1700 mAh -- bought new Nov '05, never used -- just didn't need it ;-)
The unit is in excellent condition. No scratches on screen. No dents, dings or other damage. I'm very protective of my gear. One note, though: on every C3* series I've seen the chrome get's light scratches just under the pads that 'protect' the chrome from the bottom edge of the screen. Mine has those. They polish away with chrome cleaner but re-appear after a few days use so I don't bother about them.
For those curious about the Rev G Socket BT. It works fine with the Cacko beta. The only issue is sleep/resume. I usually have to eject and re-insert the card to get it to work again. I've seen a couple of scripts in the forums to address the issue but since BT isn't my main connectivity method it didn't really bother me. The Ambicom is just perfect -- sleep/resume it just works beautifully with every ROM I've tried.
The C3100 is US$589 delivered to the US. My C3k is nearly a year old but has some valuable goodies in terms of the wifi, bt and spare battery. I'll sell it for US$550 exclusive of shipping & duty (for those outside the US). I'm opening this to the ZUG first.
Currently the unit has OZ 3.5.3. I can flash it back to Sharp or just about any other ROM before shipping or leave it as is.
Disclosure: I fully disassembled the Z and posted the pictures on my website. http://www.hypernote.com/gallery if you want to see them. I'm pretty meticulous about my work. I didn't mod or damage internals of the unit, just wanted to see the insides.
P.S. Anyone intersted in a Nikon D100 with external flash in excellent condition?

I've posted photos of my C3k as I took it apart a while back. I've finally moved the project from back burner to fully baked. With all the good discussions going on about hardware mods it seemed like a good time to post them.
I've posted two albums. The first is a series of images and (some) stepwise instructions for dissassembling the C3k.
The second gallery is a series of close-up shots of the motherboard. I tried to capture every part of the motherboard, front and back, to give hardware hackers a quick reference to the C3k without having to open their Z every other day. To that end I've erred on the side of brightening and extra sharpening. If any of the images are hard to use, let me know. I have the originals and can either post a new one with different adjustments, or really blow one up. At the time I wasn't in the mood to tear apart the LCD. If the need arises I may tackle that next.
