... me neither, until I stumbled upon this old thread:

They were actually rebranded 5600, 750 and 760s for the Chinese market, so not really brand new models.

Yes, I think I may have a 7500C that I bought years ago from a friend who moved up to the C1000. I put it away because it will not boot, which I might try to fix sometime.

That's a cool gallery of pictures in the second link. Thanks for posting this!

Looks like you have a pretty rare model. I have never seen any of them on sale on the japanese Yahoo Auction site as well, I guess the only way to find them is on the chinese auction sites.

Based on my contacts in China the SL-7600C was never released and Tao Bao (Chinese eBay equivalent) backs that up. There are only SL-5600C and SL-7500C listed on it. I would love to get a hold of a working SL-7500C to see if the Flash update menu is in Simplified Chinese or English as I noticed that that loading and splash screens are in English.    

I need to find a reliable broker in China to purchase an SL-7500C through Tao Bao like I have for Yahoo! Auctions in Japan.
I think I'm coming down with what kahm's got!  I now have 3 Zaurii in house!  ;)

Thanks for the info. I'm curious about the flash menu language too  I don't know of any broker for chinese markets, does Tao Bao have any recommended proxy service (like Yahoo with Buyee)?
