I work for a medium size Communications Company. I am looking at purchacing some Sharp Zaurii for the tech dept. Either the 5600 or 6000 Series. After looking at the current PDA offerings, I found this one to be the best match. I would like your opinion though before I take the plunge. Here are some things I plan to use them for, and my current concerns.
Running Apache w/PHP and Mysql. I need do this because we run a knowledgebase Pineapple Technologies that uses PHP and Mysql. (This is currently running on a Windoze box). I would like to copy the database to a mapped SD card and be able to take it on the road, modify and then sync it back up with office server.
Will I have issues with SD card formats. Will the Windoze box regonize a linux formated card? (is this even an isssue?)
How well does the Zaurus run Apache/PHP/ and Mysql?
I would also like to purchase some CF Serial cards so we will be able to run something similar to hyperterminal. A lot of our hardware need a direct serial connection to change settings, and having this portable solution would be key.
Any input would be great!
Thank you so much
