Streamline
Hello Everyone,
As normal we now have the 3200 avilable for PREORDER on our site ( http://www.streamlinecpus.com ) . We know this model is not what everyone is hoping for however this is good for a few reasons. It stops the speculation by some that the Zaurus was dead. It shows Sharp is making improvments to the "Z" (slowly). We will post the ship date once we recieve it here as well as actual pics once the unit is recieved. Should you have any questions please let us know.

What's the difference between the BL-09 and BL-11 batteries ?

Thanks.
Hrw
Can you give two infos about SL-C3200?

1. it's 'dogname' (cat /proc/cpuinfo)
2.microdrive info (cardctl ident)

thx

BTW - it probably be supported by OZ 3.5.4.1 (as it is basically borzoi with bigger uDrive)
Streamline
The BL-09 battery is for the 6000 and acts as the battery cover for it as well. The BL-11 is the oem clamshell battery from Sharp. You wanting physical characteristics right?

We are expecting our first order of 3200's by the end of the week. I will speak with our distributor and try to get the info for you before our units arrive.

the dogname is..... (drumroll)

Terrier.

And the cardctl ident is same to the SL-C3100:
"HITACHI", "microdrive"
manfid 0x0319, 0x000
function: 4 (fixed disk)

Thx

Now we need brave tester which will boot 3.5.4.1-alpha1 on terrier (images/kernel for spitz/borzoi should work) wink.gif

How do you come with that name? Why "Terrier"?

All Zs have a dog name. As Hrw said in his post, you can see it by typing 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' from the console.

Yay! Poodle!

Maybe Sharp should make a Mini-Z, (Like the XDA/MDA mini)

Sharp Chiwawa anyone?

Actually, now that I've done my own work to prove to myself that swapping out the internal microdrive is so eminently available to anyone with a small phillips screwdriver, I'm sitting here and thinking about what I would order up, if I were ole "Mr. Sharp" himself, so as to improve the Zaurus. You folks want to sit back for a minute and think about just how far the Zaurus is, in front of the rest of the pack. This is largely due to their outstanding screen and keyboard, but not only that. If I couldbn't expand that 4Gb drive to something newer, then maybe I coiuld see a beef, but the biggest thing I see right now, is Sharp missing out on the boat, in what has to rack up there nearly with IBM's leaving the PC behind, or Commodore's walking away from the Pet (remember that?). As far as a marketing blunder, it's pretty enormous, and all efforts to explain it as some part of a deep, dark strategic plot really need to take another look. Sharp wouldn't be the first company to just get so wrapped up in tunnel vision that they can't see the golden goose right when it's in the act of laying a big one.

Think about it; Sharp's position, both compeitively (because of the unique attributes of their screen, they own it, right?) and because of the leg up they have because of all these user groups, is so enviable, it's like a Marketing Guru's wet dream. When will Sharp wake up? Just after someone else steals their market ,I'm beginning to think.

aye ... just put a 4" (4.5"?) display into existing clamshells, and have wifi built-in. Storage expandable via sd and CF. With the CF freed up via built-in wifi, sd+cf is way more than enough.

ah well ... I'm currently pretty satisfied with my akita ... just trying to get the wifi card to work on it with Cacko 1.23 or get Chinese to work on GPE or pdaXrom.

I guess that only applies to Z's from Japan, as I can't seem to find a dogname on my 6000L. Unless Tosa is a dogname, but I never heard of a dog breed called Tosa before.
Hrw
06 11:03 < ibot> i guess tosa is the Sharp SL-6000 PDA, or a dog (see http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/tosa.htm)

So what general spec is the 3200 and what if any benefits would I see over my c860 ?
Can't find any spec on the forum.

What did you replace it with chuckr ?
One of the main reasons I went for the 860 was the fact that it was completely solid state. I see too many dead harddrives, I don't want one in my pda. And hi-speed 4gb cf cards are pretty cheap - even in the uk.
Just seen an 8gb, but it was pretty pricey.
So what did you use and what differences does the 3200 have over the 860 or c1000 ?

yes, I was thinking about the same thing... I am really wondering what Access will eventually come up with...

QUOTE(Access Website)
ACCESS Linux Platform
An open and flexible software platform - Major components of ALP include:

    * Standard, commercial-grade Linux kernel - version 2.6.12 and above
    * Optimized implementation of GIMP ToolKit (GTK+) - popular open source libraries for the creation of graphical user interfaces
    * GStreamer - an open source, modular and multi-threaded streaming media framework
    * SQLite - a high-performance database engine commonly used in embedded devices


GTK based gui, palm os program compatibility....

This is sounding really really good. I just hope they do it right. Of course... they could completly blow it wink.gif

But I would LOVE to be able to write scripts in pearl and have Palm OS style gui front end.

I think it would be great to have a linux powered Palm, Also if this goes well and this ends up being a modification friendly platform, this could really help the Zaurus and provide some competition.

anyway... (kinda of topic!)
