Sharp says goodbye to the Zaurus
It looks like Sharp’s last Linux-running Zaurus will ride through the assembly line early next month. For reasons easily speculated but officially unknown, the company has decided to cease production on the line and currently has no plans to release a successor.
You may remember that I wasn’t particularly impressed with the Zaurus SL-C3200, but I always hate to see clamshell devices meet their demise. I don’t know why the masses haven’t really embraced the form factor. What’s not to like about something that looks like a miniature convertible tablet PC?
As far as I know, Sharp will continue churning out e-dictionaries like the horribly named RD-CMP2000R for the Asian market.[OESF via PalmAddicts]
