W-zero3: Zaurus Killer?
« on: May 15, 2006, 06:31:04 am »
I just found that while surfing on sharp.jp website:

http://www.sharp.co.jp/ws/function/spec.html

Do you think this device would boot a zaurus linux rom?

As a phone, it uses PHS - not much use outside Japan.

I can't read Japanese either but most of it is guessable:

Do a search on "W-Zero3" and you'll find several threads where it has already been discussed.

but there's hope they might release a 3G/2.5G version for UK/Europe...

Just to note: a new model has been released, a slimmed down version that swaps screen-size for a phone keypad:
http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2006/07/04/s...hotness-redefi/

Also worth noting is that at the announcement, the Sharp representative apparently mentioned that Sharp intends to continue the Zaurus line as well.

Ahh.. but will they update the software? (especially will they release a concurrent update for existing zaurii??)  I guess that matters less and less with 3rd party development, but still...

is there a way to let Sharp know that the 'Q' is -again- in the wrong place?
