I think the N5 is a very good alternative to Zaurus/Netwalker and a good response to Psion Series 5 MX owners (exact same size, but 0.8 inch smaller screen).

Yes, there is also the UMID BZ who can be another alternative with his current standard jacks for earphone and normal USB (but currently the speed is lower then the N5, no 3G and the keyboard doesn't have a right [shift] key).

For the availability, I asked a colleague in Korea to ask about the release date ... and the answer is for July 2010 !
Maybe  I must look for a UMID BZ ...

N.B. : The N5 does not have a multitouch screen

N5 is very solid, battery life is awesome and the features are great.  Bought mine a few months back and love the hell out of it.  I got the 3g version, so mobile where ever more or less.
