Hash: SHA1

Sharp intros 5in ARM-based netbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Asus may not be so keen on ARM-based netbooks, but Sharp certainly is. Today, 
| it launched the PC-Z1 Netwalker, a weeny netbook based around a 5in display 
| and Ubuntu Linux and an ARM Cortex A8-derived CPU.

| flash storage.  


NetWalker Sharp : NetWalker, Sharp's Latest Ubuntu Netbook... Is the Zaurus
back? â Hands-On !!!

,----[ Quote ]
| While wer're still waiting for Kei to come back from a Sharp press conference 
| in order to shoot some live photos of the beast, he's telling us this little 
| baby is pretty snappy despite its Fressscale CPU. With its very compact size 
| of only 161.4x108.7x19.7mm and 409g, the NetWalker is really worth the 
| investment if you want to surf the Web on the go and check email. Compared 
| with the average Netbook, the NetWalker will put to shame any EEE or other 
| Atom wannabe compact Netbook due to its freaking small size and weight... But 
| don't ask much anyway, the CPU may not be able to handle heavy tasks like a 
| ION Based Netbooks.        



Sharp Debuts Laptop With Optical-sensor LCD Pad

Handheld Linux download

,----[ Quote ]
| Hping is open-source network testing software, and some time ago one our
| software gurus compiled a version of Hping to run on the Sharp Zaurus, which
| is a fairly ancient Linux based mobile device.


LG, Sharp, Chunghwa admit to LCD price fixing

,----[ Quote ]
| LG Display, Sharp, and Chunghwa Picture Tubes agreed to plead guilty to
| criminal charges for participating in a liquid crystal display price-fixing
| conspiracy and pay $585 million in fines, the U.S. Department of Justice
| announced Wednesday.


Android OS running on Sharp Zaurus PDA

,----[ Quote ]
| Eschewing Android on a software emulator, the team at eu.edge instead turned 
| their attentions to another venerable Linux-based mobile device: Sharpâs 
| Zaurus SL-C760.  Only officially sold in Japan, the C760 has a 640 x 480 VGA 
| screen and uses a 400MHz Intel XScale processor together with flash storage.  
| By rebuilding the Android directory tree on a host PC to match that of the 
| emulator, then mount that as an NFS share on the Zaurus, they were able to 
| get the Google Phone platform to boot.      


Ubuntu ported to a PDA

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu Linux 7.04 is now available for Sharp's Zaurus PDAs. The 0.1 release
| comes with a minimalist filesystem that can be launched in an emulator,
| enhanced with software from the vast Ubuntu archives, and then flashed onto a
| real Zaurus.


Sharp, Emblaze and ACCESS creating next-gen Linux smartphone?

,----[ Quote ]
| Very little other information has been released, but industry experts, 
| suggest that it will be a new generation of smartphone running the ACCESS 
| Linux platform designed for smartphones.   


Sharp does it once again: the SL-C3200

,----[ Conclusion ]
| As I sit here writing this while listening to the Brandenburg Concertos
| off the Zaurus, life is good. Every serious Linuxer deserves a Zaurus.


Sharp Zaurus RD-CMP2000R

,----[ Quote ]
| Sharp has announced a new Linux-based handheld for distribution in
| Asia.
| Formally, the Zaurus RD-CMP2000R is an electronic dictionary, but thanks
| to the open OS it can easily cope with common PDA-related tasks. Although
| the manufacturer didn?t reveal the complete list of hardware
| specifications, even those announced can make the majority of handheld
| owners envious.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
