Sharp Zaurus- RIP


The Sharp Zaurus enthusiast community is buzzing with the news that Sharp is shutting down production of the Zaurus line of PDAs in February.  The Sharp Zaurus is a Linux-based clamshell PDA that has a huge community of owners and developers thanks to its open-source foundation and it will be missed once its gone forever.  I reviewed the SL-C3000 quite some time ago and found the little clamshell to be a very powerful gadget that many have embraced for years.  As is often the case with gadgets Sharp feels the line has reached the end of the road and will stop producing them shortly.  It’s always sad when something like the Zaurus is discontinued and many enthusiast web sites are in mourning following the news.
