OESF Portables Forum _ General Discussion _ Random Links To Zaurus Related Blogs/videos

Posted by: Varti Oct 3 2016, 04:27 AM

I think it would be a nice idea to share links of recently updated blogs/websites of people using their Zauruses, which we might stumble upon while searching for other stuff. I'll start with this blog:

A Zaurus SL-C760 used during train commutes:

The english Sharp User Group have opened a new, modern site for the club:

On their About page they mention support for older pre-Linux Zauruses (ZR-5700, ZR-5800 etc.):

A video showcasing an impressive collection of UMPCs/PDAs (25!), including an SL-C1000, a Netwalker and a GPD Win, with a short review of each item:

I wonder if all of them are in a working condition...

Updating this thread with some recent Zaurus posts I came across:

A japanese Akita user trying out Alarmz, seems he's having some problems in booting it, hopefully if he speaks English he'll come here and ask for help smile.gif
