Unboxing the Sharp NetWalker PC-Z1

Sharp_netwalker_unbox

I knew from the moment I saw the Sharp NetWalker PC-Z1 that I'd have to get my hands on one as soon as I could. The 5-inch WSVGA touchscreen, optical mouse, mouse buttons, 6-row keyboard, 800MHz ARM Cortex A8-based Freescale CPU, compact clamshell form factor, and easy conversion into English were just too much for me to resist.

Conics.net received their supply of Netwalkers last week and began shipping them from their offices in Japan on Friday. A weekend flight, a quick check through customs, and here it is at Pocketables HQ in Hawaii just a few days later!
