Perhaps Hitachi know something Sharp don’t.

Cacko/PdaX Rom anyone?

hmmm.. same chips?  can ya put linux on it?  It certainly LOOKS exactly like a 6000...
Interesting.  I wonder if sharp sold the design?

128megs too.... any price?  might be worth seeingif it really IS a 6k ( I bet it is too...)

edit: there is no cacko nor pdaXrom for the 6000. sharp and openzaurus only. I wouldn't expect cacko or pdax to port to this.  OpenZaurus might be woth checking though...

It looks like around $900 US, unless I did the math wrong, with the current exchange rates. Looks to be targeted at businesses, probably ones that have Windows CE apps and/or developers already.   I was hoping for a mass-produced high volume PPC, which would make it cheaper and easier to get than a SL-6000.

I was thinking pretty much the same thing.  It may yet come down though..... except that the dollar is worth less every day

remember though.. despite evidence to the contrary, deficits don't matter

Just found this, looks like a Zaurus but it is from Hitachi & runs MS Pocket PC, perhaps we have another ROM option?
