I'm thinking of selling my 5500 and my c700 (when I get it fixed) but I still want a zaurus.

should I go with C760, c860 or sl-6000??

I know that there's not much difference btwn the 760 and 860, but hte case looks nicer (dunno if it's worth the extra $$ )

I want the features that 6000 have (builtin bluetooth and wifi) but I really dont want to go back to the tablet design after using clamshell design

oh the dilemma!! ?!? :?

maybe wait a little more. there are rumours about a clamshell-successor coming "soon"...

Mickey,

do you have a link to the site that is spreading the rumor.

if that's true then I definitely would get that! :shock:

What, the Sl-6000 has not been released as yet and already rumours of a new one...

Or maybe this is about a Japanese release again right ?
I have never felt so frustrated by any other company as Sharp with its frequent release (or news of release like SL-6000) and not be able to get one directly in hand - everything is outside of the US.

Just on a whim I did a Google search for 'Zaurus SL-C960' and it turned up what appears to be a technical document talking about faults or errors encountered in some type of development effort.

The document references the SL-C870 & SL-C960, but no specific information about features or specifications. Looks like the rumor could be true.

Nate,

I translated that and it didnt come out that great ( I used http://excite.co.jp/world/url/ ) I'll try it later with babelfish.

Thanks for the link!

There are referrences to 870 and a 960 in that page. Here is what I got from babel fish. Not really sure what CSide is though it looks like they have a few test machines that are not on the market or someone can not type. Though 870 and 960 are both used several times in the readme. So we can hope.

i agree that someone can't type. there are only two references to 960, so it could be one typo. every other instance of mentioning model numbers lists them in ascending order, except this one: i guess it's meant to say 860, 870, rather than 960, 870. Since 870 is referenced repeatedly, and in the name of an ipk (much less likely to be misspelled), I believe that one. However, I still don't know what its features are.

hmm.. interesting point.. so that means probably no c960

but what are the specs of the c870??

You can always try following the Sharp Zaurus - Japan site, not that it will necessarily show the latest and greatest. However, I would think that any product release in Japan would be mentioned there. They can't be THAT bad!

I wouldn't bet too much on the CSIDE document. It's just a typo.
For anyone interested, CSIDE is the equivalent of Codewarrior IDE for Zaurus in Japan.

But I would be interested in knowning about future releases smile.gif

Just to add to the rumor...

On one Japanese 2ch site, some anonymous user said that Sharp will be announcing the SL-C970 on March 17.

I guess just wait and see.

- ashikase
anpachi, gifu, japan
Zuber
No idea if this counts for anything...

But talking to one of our suppliers (Official Sharp Retailer in Japan)

"My friend in Sharp said, they will not release new model in this spring."

Does not mean they will not announce a new model, though last time it was only two or three weeks between announcment and official launch, after which 10 unit were avialable in the whole of Japan smile.gif

What I'm thinking is stupid but if they make something on the 9xx like 970 then that would probably be the near end of zaurus SL-C series since they probably won't go to SL-C1000 or something...
Zuber
End of product line because they ran out of numbers. Interesting smile.gif

Guess they would have to bring out SL-D models...

Xxx if you here me, put Wifi + Bluetooth + Qtopia 2.0 + X11 compatibility in this new little device. Help the Open Source Community ideas to spread in people minds. Help one of the last humain trend of generosity to survive.

Mantra?

If a new device appear, it will still need a good OS to succeed in the European and US mass market. It's hard for all companies arround Sharp PDA to support a niche market.

All those years and nothing really powerful is out (I'm not talknig about pdaXrom here but Sharp). Why? Does the true is hidden somewhere? (do you hear the Xfile music?) :|
riki_nakamura
You know come to think of it sharp has done a big jump in it's technologies... guess what sharps first invention was??? the mechanical pencil... in japan they call the mechanical pencil a sharp pencil (they always stay sharp) and now they make high tech computers... although the mechanical pencil is still hard to make and most are made in japan since they need small machines... super sharp!
