Sharp's 5-inch PC-Z1 NetWalker honors Zaurus legacy with touchscreen Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Now Sharp makes it official with the launch of this 5-inch, 1024 x600 TFT LCD
| touchscreen NetWalker smartbook, aka the PC-Z1. It's not a Zaurus per se, but
| the compact 161.4 x 108.7 x 19.7 ~ 24.8mm / 409g device certainly resurrects
| its ghost. Underpinning the device is an 800MHz Freescale i.MX515 CPU built
| around the ARM Cortex-A8 architecture, 512MB of memory, 4GB of on-board flash
| storage (with microSDHC expansion for another 16GB), 802.11b/g WiFi, 2x USB,
| and QWERTY keyboard going 68 percent of full-size.

| it launched the PC-Z1 Netwalker, a weeny netbook based around a 5in display
| and Ubuntu Linux and an ARM Cortex A8-derived CPU.

| The Ubuntu Linux on the PC-Z1 is a based on the Ubuntu 9.0.4 for ARM port,
| and with Firefox and OpenOffice, still leaves around 2GB free on the internal
| flash storage.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
